Paperback - 2016
Rate this:
"With Mexico's War on Crime as the backdrop, Making Things Stick offers an innovative analysis of how surveillance technologies impact governance in the global society. More than tools to monitor ordinary people, surveillance technologies are imagined by government officials as a way to reform the national state by focusing on the material things--cellular phones, automobiles, human bodies--that enable crime. In describing the challenges that the Mexican government has encountered in implementing this novel approach to social control, author Keith Guzik presents surveillance technologies as a sign of state weakness rather than strength and as an opportunity for civic engagement rather than retreat"--Provided by publisher.
