From the Publisher"No one can miss the cameras; they're on the main roads, in the city streets, and in the stores. You can, however, mistake their meaning. The Maximum Surveillance Society offers a clear and nuanced reading of the social and political trends revealed in the recent rush to install CCTV cameras. With a wealth of day-to-day detail, and a sensitive use of theory, this book displays the grounded scholarly imagination at its best.
Avoiding both alarmism and complacency, the authors provide a timely analysis that demands widespread attention." —David Lyon, Professor of Sociology, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario
"[A] landmark study." —The Big Issue
