Reviews

"There is endless value in gathering data from every angle--especially from above. Arthur Holland Michel's new book, Eyes in the Sky, powerfully unpacks the evolution and morality of modern aerial surveillance. For the military and beyond, Holland Michel deftly outlines how we can delicately balance the technology's limitless potential with its resultant impacts on our daily lives."
--General (ret.) Stanley McChrystal, former commander of Joint Special Operations Command and author of Team of Teams

"A groundbreaking book about the promise and peril of wide-area motion imagery on and off the battlefield. Arthur Holland Michel's thoughtful and probing work calls for urgent consideration of the rapidly expanding uses--public and private--of automatic surveillance technology."
--Linda Robinson, author of One Hundred Victories

"
Eyes in the Sky
is an immensely readable and vitally important account of the development and deployment of surveillance technologies that will have profound implications for free societies. It belongs on the desk of every policymaker and on the bookshelf of every informed citizen."
--Ben Wizner, Director, ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project

"On almost every page, EYES IN THE SKY offers astonishing details that seem to belong in science fiction. But they're true. The same technology can be used to battle forest fires or literally track your every move. Can we control these machines? As Arthur Holland Michel makes clear in this riveting and important book, we now have a choice: confront the threat or sacrifice our basic freedoms."
--Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation and Command and Control

"
Eyes in the Sky
is an invaluable guide to a new era of 'smart' persistent surveillance."
--Trevor Paglen, artist and author of Blank Spots on the Map

"Engaging and timely, Arthur Holland Michel's portrayal of the ubiquitous eye in the sky shows how it makes us all safer, but also may mean the end of privacy. His work uncovers the groundbreaking history of some of the world's most advanced imagery surveillance programs and demonstrates a dizzying array of technological capabilities that have the potential to permanently alter many aspects of our society forever."
--Richard A. Clarke, author of Against All Enemies and former National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism
