Vetter's work is a timely inquiry into the dynamics of power associated with techno-panopticism. -- Mark Poster Grant Vetter's book is remarkable not only for its brilliant mapping of neo-Panoptic architectures and the evolution of intensive controls over life and social energies, but for its deep and sustained meditation on the historical relevance and potential of Feng Shui as a creative and practical mode of resistance. -- William Bogard, author of The Simulation of Surveillance: Hypercontrol in telematic societies Confronting cartographies of subjectivation, Vetter presents an exciting and timely series of meditations on the development and implications of surveillance architectures. Guiding the discussion is a quest for the emancipatory potentials in the relationships between people and the architectonic forces shaping contemporary life. In this book one will encounter the obvious figures such as Bentham and Foucault, as well as Batman, and Japanese horror films. An important discussion of how subjectivity can be understood and how that can be controlled is opened here. -- Paul Boshears, co-editor of Continent journal Continent journal, 2012
