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.
