dragnet nation

My husband reads as many, if not more books as I do. I frequently take home library books I think he’d be interested in. One recent title is Dragnet Nation: A Quest for Privacy, Security and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance by Julia Angwin. Here’s what he has to say about this new book.

Dragnet Nation: is about how we are always being “watched” when we are online or using our cell phones; the surveillance comes from corporations who want to track what we buy, and from governments who worry that we are criminals. Angwin’s book, full of interesting and sometimes shocking anecdotes, gives a first-person account of her struggle to maintain her privacy in a world that seems determined to take it away.
