Although surveillance hit the headlines with revelations by Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency had been tracking phone calls worldwide, surveillance of citizens by their governments actually has been conducted for centuries. Only now, with the advent of modern technologies, it has exponentially evolved so that today you can barely step out your door without being watched or recorded in some way. In addition to the political and security surveillance unveiled by the Snowden revelations, think about corporate surveillance: each swipe of your ID card to enter your office is recorded, not to mention your Internet activity. Or economic surveillance: what you buy online or with a credit card is recorded and your trip to the supermarket is videotaped. Drive through a tollbooth, and your license plate is recorded. Simply walk down a street and your image is recorded again and again and again. Where does this begin and end? In all levels of social structure, from the personal to the political to the economic to the judicial, The SAGE Encyclopedia of Surveillance, Security, and Privacy uncovers and explains how surveillance has come to be an integral part of how our contemporary society operates worldwide and how it impacts our security and privacy Key features include: Approximately 450 signed entries from contributors around the globe Further readings and cross-references conclude each article to guide students further as they explore a topic A Reader's Guide organizes entries by broad thematic areas

This book examines Winston Churchill’s role in the creation and development of the Anglo–American special relationship. Drawing together world leading and emergent scholars, this volume offers a critical celebration of Churchill’s contribution to establishing the Anglo–American special relationship. Marking the seventieth anniversary of Churchill’s pronouncement in 1946 of that special relationship in his famous Iron Curtain speech, the book provides new insights into old debates by drawing upon approaches and disciplines that have hitherto been marginalised or neglected. The book foregrounds agency, culture, values, ideas and the construction and representation of special Anglo–American relations, past and present. The volume covers two main themes. Firstly, it identifies key influences upon Churchill as he developed his political career, especially processes and patterns of Anglo–American convergence prior to and during World War Two. Second, it provides insights into how Churchill sought to promote a post-war Anglo–American special relationship, how he discursively constructed it and how he has remained central to that narrative to the present day. From this analysis emerges new understanding of the raw material from which Churchill conjured special UK–US relations and of how his conceptualisation of that special relationship has been shaped and re-shaped in the decades after 1946. This book will be of much interest to students of Anglo–American relations, Cold War Studies, foreign policy, international history and IR in general.

Hay fechas en la Historia en las que los acontecimientos se aceleran, momentos que recogen la trayectoria de las décadas pasadas para convertirse en su epítome a la vez que aportan las grandes líneas directrices del futuro inmediato. El año de 1989 es, sin duda, una de estas fechas: en Paraguay, la eterna dictadura de Stroessner llegaba a su fin, mientras que unos kilómetros más al Oeste, en Chile, la oposición democrática vencía en las elecciones libres a una dictadura no menos emblemática, la de Augusto Pinochet. En Asia, el régimen de los ayatolás enterraba aquel año a su líder, Jomeini; por su parte, el gigante chino, todavía subestimado económica y políticamente, ofrecía su lado más oscuro en la matanza de estudiantes de Tiananmen, mientras en el continente africano los rescoldos del largo y penoso proceso de descolonización ardían todavía en Namibia: el antiguo territorio de África del Sudoeste era abandonado por las fuerzas militares del régimen racista de Pretoria, que al año siguiente, obligado por la presión internacional, liberaría de la prisión a Nelson Mandela, uno de los grandes iconos del siglo que se cerraba. Pero fue sobre todo la caída del Muro de Berlín en noviembre lo que, simbólicamente, inició el final de los regímenes comunistas de Europa central y oriental y abrió las puertas a la desintegración de la Unión Soviética dos años más tarde. El fin del orden internacional consagrado en Yalta cincuenta años atrás daba paso a una nueva realidad, más abierta –también más confusa–, donde la indiscutible primacía norteamericana debería conjugarse con una serie de potencias emergentes. Apenas pasadas dos décadas desde aquel año que cambió el mundo, esta magnífica monografía analiza cómo lo sucedido entonces dio origen al nacimiento de un nuevo orden internacional.
