Overview

The No-Nonsense Guide to Global Surveillance by Robin Tudge

Spying, once the province of the KGB, CIA, and MI5, has become part of everyday life and a multi-billion dollar industry. Governments routinely trawl our emails and CCTV cameras follow us on every street, while state databases of our DNA become larger all the time. This book shows the extent to which Big Brother is watching us all.

Robin Tudge is a freelance journalist and author who has lived and worked in Chicago, Pyongyang, Moscow, Hanoi, and Beijing. He is the author of The Bradt Guide to North Korea and the award-winning Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories .
