Windows Into the Soul

soulWindows Into the Soul : Surveillance and Society in An Age of High Technology
By Marx, Gary T.
Book – 2016

The library’s barcode sticker on the back generally obscures some unimportant back-cover information but, in this case, it is troublesome: it covers Schneier’s recommendation. I wanted to read that so I found it on the web:

In a world punch-drunk on data, with both governments and corporations Рnot to mention private persons Рincreasingly recording and correlating our every move, Windows Into the Soul is an important and timely book

The author, Gary Marx, is / was an MIT professor who lives and breathes surveillance, in particular, the social and philosophical aspects. This book is not easy reading, but it is thought-provoking.
