________________________________

US intelligence agencies - the eponymous American spies - are exceedingly
aggressive, pushing and sometimes bursting through the technological, legal
and political boundaries of lawful surveillance. Written for a general
audience by a surveillance law expert, this book educates readers about how
the reality of modern surveillance differs from popular understanding.
Weaving the history of American surveillance - from J. Edgar Hoover through
the tragedy of September 11th to the fusion centers and mosque infiltrators
of today - the book shows that mass surveillance and democracy are
fundamentally incompatible. Granick shows how surveillance law has fallen
behind while surveillance technology has given American spies vast new
powers. She skillfully guides the reader through proposals for reining in
massive surveillance with the ultimate goal of surveillance reform.
