Image of The Story of Surveillance with Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones

In a world where public debates on surveillance are increasingly prolific, one could be mistaken for assuming we have a full understanding of the methods employed to keep an eye on us. As Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones demonstrates in this illuminating book, however, our knowledge of the ways in which our personal information and movements are tracked is far from complete.

We Know All About You will provide a wake-up call to those who prioritise security over personal liberties, and should serve as a handbook for those leading the charge against government and corporate interference. Jeffreys-Jones has written a brilliantly accessible book, offering food for thought for academics and the public alike.

Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Edinburgh. He is an authority on surveillance and espionage, having written extensively on the CIA, FBI, and the history of violence in the United States. He is a graduate of Aberystwyth and Cambridge Universities, and has held positions at the University of Toronto and Harvard University.

Collecting your event book voucher

Group bookings

If you require more than 10 places, please contact the bookshop for a group booking so that we can arrange to seat you together.

How our event book vouchers work

The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event, which also guarantees admittance for one person. Event book vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.

Refunds and Exchanges

In order to maintain the great value of our event book vouchers, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
