Eyes Everywhere: The Global Growth of Camera Surveillance

Edited by Aaron Doyle, Randy Lippert and David Lyon
Eyes Everywhere: The Global Growth of Camera Surveillance

Eyes Everywhere provides the first international perspective on the development of camera surveillance. It scrutinises the quiet but massive expansion of camera surveillance around the world in recent years, focusing especially on Canada, the UK and the USA but also including less-debated but important contexts such as Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey. Containing both broad overviews and illuminating case-studies, including cameras in taxi-cabs and at mega-events such as the Olympics, the book offers a valuable oversight on the status of camera surveillance in the second decade of the 21st century.

The book will be fascinating reading for students and scholars of camera surveillance as well as policy makers and practitioners from the police, chambers of commerce, private security firms and privacy- and data-protection agencies.
