"David Lyon provides a chilling and comprehensive account of the surveillance response to 9/11 by nation-states and corporations. His writing is exceptionally clear and graceful, his scholarship is impeccable, and his judgment is fair and wise."Mark Poster, University of California
"A devastating critique on the attempt to engineer security through ever-increasing surveillance capabilities. Lyon brilliantly shows us how these begin to function as a clandestine power that erodes democracy in the name of our wellbeing."
Saskia Sassen, author of Globalization and its Discontents
"Surveillance After September 11 provides the reader with a very useful analysis of past and current security trends, along with predictions of possible future devlopments, in the context of global social change. Lyon's book provides us with a useful, relevant, clear-minded starting-point."
