Surveillance is always a means to an end, whether that end is influence, management or entitlement. This book examines the several layers of surveillance that control the Palestinian population in Israel and the Occupied Territories, showing how they operate, how well they work, how they are augmented, and how in the end their chief purpose is population control.
Showing how what might be regarded as exceptional elsewhere is here regarded as the norm, the book looks not only at the political economy of surveillance and its technological and military dimensions, but also at the ordinary ways that Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territories are affected in their everyday lives. Written in a clear and accessible style by experts in the field, this book will have large appeal for academic faculty as well as graduate and senior undergraduate students in sociology, political science, international relations, surveillance studies and Middle East studies.

"This stimulating edited collection is a valuable contribution to the growing corpus of scholarship that takes Israel’s over forty-year occupation regime as its central object of analysis, research, and comparative theoretical reflection... this important volume provides a sound basis for further comparative studies in the technologies of power that are transforming the globe at this time." - Steve Niva; Journal of Palestine Studies, Vol. 41, No. 1 (Autumn 2011)
