It traces the connections between the massive multinational conglomerates that manufacture, distribute and promote technologies of ‘surveillance’, and the institutions of social control and civil society.Part 1 investigates how the surveillance-industrial complex spans international boundaries through the workings of global capital and its interaction with agencies of the state. Part 2 looks at surveillance as an organizational control process, perpetuating the interests and voices of certain actors and weakening or silencing others. Part 3 shows how local political economies shape the deployment and distribution of the massive interactions of global capital/military that comprise surveillance systems today.
