2 Theorizing surveillance: the case of the workplace. 3 Biometrics and the body as information: normative issues of the socio-technical coding of the body. There is something sacrosanct, so the argument goes, about the private realm where I am free to be myself and where I need not fear the prying eyes of snoops and spies. There are some things I feel it inappropriate to reveal promiscuously to others, let alone to be revealed about me without my knowledge or consent.

Elia Zureik, David Lyon, Yasmeen Abu-Laban. Surveillance is always a means to an end, whether that end is influence, management or entitlement. This book examines the several layers of surveillance that control the Palestinian population in Israel and the Occupied Territories, showing how they operate, how well they work, how they are augmented, and how in the end their chief purpose is population control. Showing how what might be regarded as exceptional elsewhere is here regarded as the norm, the book looks not only at the political economy of surveillance and its technological and military.
