Surveillance as Social Sorting: Privacy, Risk and Automated Discrimination
David LyonISBN: 0415278732;
This book examines some crucial aspects of surveillance processes with a view to showing what constitutes them, why the growth of surveillance is accelerating and what is really at stake personally and politically. It scrutinizes individual surveillance systems - CCTV, biometrics, intelligent transportation systems, smart cards, on-line profiling - and discusses their implications for our future. Surveillance as Social Sorting is a fascinating contribution to a relatively new field - surveillance studies.
