About the Author

David Lyon is Professor in the Department of Sociology and Director of the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen's University, Canada.


"This book manages to be comprehensive and authoritative in approach, whilst providing a very convincing and accessible account of key shifts in technology and society that underpins the concept of surveillance culture. This makes it both an original and high-quality contribution to the field." Lina Dencik, Cardiff University, UK "The Culture of Surveillance provides a nuanced account of contemporary surveillance practices." Daniel Trottier, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands "David Lyon has long been a powerful witness to the corrosive consequences of contemporary surveillance. This latest work warns how digital modernity's surveillance regimes insinuate themselves into our lives and shape the most intimate qualities of experience. Lyon explores the threat of normalization, calling for resilience and agency against such surveillance and suggesting alternatives. Once again, we are in his debt." Shoshana Zuboff, Harvard Business School "Compelling... The Culture of Surveillance offers an unprecedented insight into how complex and consequential the monitoring of human action has truly become." Ed Bryan, Social & Cultural Geography 'Written in an accessible style, The Culture of Surveillance offers a neat and concise overview of a vast array of surveillance literature, distilled into an analysis of the emergent surveillance culture in surveillance capitalism.' Amanda Glasbeek, York University "In The Culture of Surveillance, David Lyon has provided a potential roadmap for the future of surveillance scholarship, and as such, the book may prove to be his most important and influential yet." Benjamin J. Goold, Surveillance & Society
