Description

How to understand--and protect oneself from--the total surveillance state

We are all constantly being spied on--and we know it. A 2015 Pew Research Center survey found that 80% believe we should be concerned about government monitoring of our phone and Internet communication, and more than 90% understand that we have lost control over how our personal information is collected and used by corporations. And yet, in the wake of the Paris attacks by ISIS, the director of the CIA angrily complained about "hand-wringing" over privacy and civil liberties, promising more not less global surveillance.

Here is a practical guide to protecting our data--ourselves--from state and corporate intrusion, and a political guide that explains the reasons for and the extent of the erosion of privacy. Discussing flashpoints over surveillance and dissidence from the Arab spring to Occupy to Edward Snowden's revelations, and written by award-winning journalists, this book provides a step-by-step guide and an accessible explanation of a seemingly technical and bewildering subject.
