National Security, Surveillance and Terror : Canada and Australia in Comparative Perspective (Hardcover)
About this item
To be re-drafted:
This book investigates and raises conceptual questions about the relationship amongst governments, police and security agencies, and citizens in these two major western jurisdictions [Canada & Australia]. Observing that many or most debates about these topics are dominated by US and UK perspectives, this volume provides an analysis of national security and surveillance practices that are legitimated through rhetorical reference to terror policing, a continuous state or readiness.
