In the wake of the National Security Agency exposé of 2013, scholars and citizens alike have been turning a critical eye toward the United States' surveillance policies. Technology of Oppression contributes to this ongoing discussion with a systematic analysis of mass surveillance in America and allied countries, detailing how lax intelligence laws have allowed these technologies to undermine common civil liberties. Toward the practical end of reigning in exsisting surveillance technologies, Cohen offers a concise proposal listing the policy changes and software developments necessary to establish an internet-based, global forum for transparency affecting legal and technological change.--Back cover.
