"A lively catalog of privacy-related court cases and laws that have arisen alongside new technologies."-- Sue Halpern, The New York Review of Books

"A lively history of recent Fourth Amendment jurisprudence ... Farivar is correct that among the many things the tech industry has disrupted is Fourth Amendment jurisprudence." -- Louis Menand, The New Yorker

"Farivar's work is essential, smart and cogent." -- Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway

"A great book. Cyrus Farivar shows that the government, at all levels, needs to more forthright about what kind of surveillance is used on all of us. The law desperately needs to catch up." -- Rep. Ted Lieu, U.S. Representative for California's 33rd congressional district

"Habeas Data should be required reading for all public officials who want to better understand the near-future of privacy and surveillance." -- Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland, CA

"Essential reading for anyone concerned with how technology has overrun privacy." -- Mitch Kapor, co-founder Electronic Frontier Foundation

"Cyrus Farivar pulls back the curtain on how the government has transformed everyday technologies into surveillance machines, and public and private places into surveillance traps--part deep-dive into how everything from your smartphone to your home can be used as a surveillance tool, and part crash-course in the court cases that both help and fail to constrain the government's most privacy-invasive activities. Should be at the top of everyone's must-read list." -- Robyn Greene, policy counsel, The Open Technology Institute at New America

"A powerful book that looks at how two invisible forces--law and technology--combine to change the world we live in and the future that is available to us." -- Matt Mitchell, founder CryptoHarlem

"Cyrus Farivar has covered the excitement and tensions of big data collection for years. He his perfectly positioned, with this new book, to chart the history that brought us here and suss out where we're going next." -- Emily Bazelon, author of Sticks and Stones & co-host of Slate's Political Gabfest
