Riassunto: The world has become familiar with the unprecedented growth of surveillance after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, but a comprehensive analysis of the public's opinion of how their privacy is being protected or invaded has been unavailable - until now. "Surveillance, Privacy, and the Globalization of Personal Information" reports the findings of an international survey of citizens' experiences with newly implemented security measures and their perceptions about privacy issues. Covering a range of countries from China, Japan, Brazil, and Mexico to the United States, Canada, Spain, France, and Hungary, this volume reveals the similarities and differences among populations in their reactions to the surveillance era and in the amount each knows about government monitoring. Topics deal with pertinent issues such as global, national, and local transfer of personal information about citizens' financial transactions, work and travel. The authors also analyse the collaboration of government and the private sector in the collection and transfer of private information. A remarkable resource in understanding attitudes towards surveillance, security and privacy, "Surveillance, Privacy, and the Globalization of Personal Information" is indispensable for anyone curious about what governments, the private sector, and citizens know about each other.
L'autore: Elia Zureik is a professor emeritus of Sociology at Queen's University.
