Transparent LivesVivre a nu

 

This book is the collaborative work of The New Transparency: Surveillance and Social Sorting / La nouvelle transparence: surveillance et tri social, a multidisciplinary research team funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and is published in both official languages.

Transparent Lives explains why and how surveillance is expanding—mostly unchecked—into every facet of our lives. It questions whether or not the loss of control over our personal information is merely the price we pay for using social media and other forms of electronic communication, or whether we should be wary of systems that make us visible, and thus vulnerable, to others as never before.

Intended not only to inform but to make a difference, this book is deliberately aimed at a broad audience, including legislators and policymakers, journalists, civil liberties groups, educators, and, above all, the reading public.

Vivre à nu explique comment la surveillance s’accroît – pratiquement sans que personne y porte attention – dans toutes les sphères de notre vie. Est-ce que le prix à payer pour utiliser les médias sociaux et d’autres moyens de communication électronique est de desserrer notre emprise sur nos renseignements personnels? Au contraire, devrions-nous nous méfier des systèmes qui nous rendent plus que jamais visibles et, par conséquent, vulnérables aux yeux des autres?

 

Cet ouvrage vise non seulement à informer, mais également à changer le cours des choses. Il cible intentionnellement un grand public: les décideurs, les journalistes, les groupes de défense des libertés civiles, les enseignants et, par-dessus tout, les lecteurs du grand public.

"Since Snowden's revelations, surveillance is in the news. But we often have only a vague and fragmentary sense of what surveillance is or why it's important. Transparent Lives: Surveillance in Canada; puts all sorts of surveillance -- on the street, in airports, on social media, carried out by government agencies, police or corporations -- in context. Nine key trends are explained that show why surveillance is growing in particular ways. But it's not just analysis. The book shows how surveillance can be curbed and can serve the common good."

David Lyon, Director, The New Transparency Project
