"A brisk and insightful guide to our world of increasingly ubiquitous surveillance that poses challenging questions about who is surveilled, who has privacy, and how we are being sold the chains to our own imprisonment."
--Nick Srnicek, King's College London

"The data economy features surveillance which is simultaneously everywhere and nowhere. This book is essential reading for those who wish to identify, resist, and challenge the surveillance consequences of big data for the individual, for democracy, and for society."

Peter Bloom heads the People and Organisations Department at the Open University, UK, and is the co-founder of the Research Centre 'REEF'. His books include Digital Control: Surveillance and Power in the Age of Big Data (Pluto, 2019) and The CEO Society: The Corporate Takeover of Everyday Life (Zed, 2018). His writing has featured in the Washington Post, Guardian, and New Statesman.
