"Activists and the Surveillance State is a wide-ranging exploration of collective organizing in response to state and corporate surveillance. The book's rich discussion of what movements have learned--and failed to learn--about how surveillance works makes it a crucial reference for scholars and activists alike."
--Arun Kundnani, author of The Muslims Are Coming

"This important collection draws critical attention to the harms of state surveillance and police power, and how this power has been challenged and resisted by ordinary citizens. It is a must-read for activists, community organisers, and scholars alike."

Aziz Choudry is Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Social Movement Learning and Knowledge Production in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education, McGill University, and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, University of Johannesburg. He is editor of Activists and the Surveillance State (Pluto, 2018) and Just Work? Migrant Workers' Struggles Today (Pluto, 2016).
