Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: 'A fascinating exploration of the relation between surveillance (Foucault) and simulation (Baudrillard) ... The simulation of surveillance is sophisticated theoretically, but quite accessible, studded with concrete examples that illustrate the phenomena in question.' Mark Poster, University of California, Irvine
