Questions of surveillance are always also questions of geography. From the famous disciplinary spaces of Bentham's panoptic prison projects to today's control societies based on millions of sensors, cameras and data capture devices spread across the world, perspectives from critical geography offer massive potential for understanding surveillance societies. And yet, remarkably, this pivotal and state-of-the art book is the first to really consider the intersections of geography and surveillance with real depth and clarity.
This book engages with the timely and significant debate around surveillance, space and power. These three elements have been recognized as crucial since the works of Foucault, but a lot has changed since, especially when it comes to IT-based techniques of control. This book discusses the contemporary political geography of surveillance and the surveillance–space nexus in many different contexts. Firmly grounded in previous understandings, Klauser examines the multifaceted ways in which space makes a difference to the exercise and experience of surveillance.
