Product Description

Review

"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)

Review

Public surveillance cameras are one of the most significant and controversial anti—crime initiatives of the past twenty years. Sean Hier’s s is the definitive study of the early introduction of such devices in Canada. Hier details the local politics, policing, and privacy concerns that have shaped Canada’s approach to public surveillance. Anyone interested in the nitty—gritty politics of how anti—crime initiatives are implemented should read this book.
