Overview

The United States and Britain are open societies committed to individual freedoms and civil liberties. So how are we to explain the obsessive concern with penal and social controls that has come to characterize these nations in the last few decades? How did these free societies come to embrace mass imprisonment, private policing, surveillance cameras, and gated communities? The Culture of Control shows how new structures of everyday life have changed our experience of crime and insecurity, prompting the build-up of a control culture so intense that it undermines the very freedoms it aims to preserve.
