Product Details

Product Description


"With Panoptic Dreams, Hier has made a major scholarly contribution to surveillance studies. It combines sound theory, rigorous research, lucid analysis, and clear-minded proposals that stand to reinvigorate the policy discourse on how to make public-area video surveillance relevant to Canadian cities and towns. Panoptic Dreams is the benchmark for future empirical studies in this field." - Brandon C. Welsh, Professor of Criminology, Northeastern University; author of Making Public Places Safer: Surveillance and Crime Prevention (Oxford University Press, 2009)

Book Description

This book explains how and why streetscape video surveillance systems have appeared in Canada and provides much-needed data for debates on the ethics and utility of surveillance in Western democracies.
