From the cutting-edge young historian and reporter Christian Parenti, a vivid, chilling history of surveillance in American life-from the antebellum South to the computerized landscape of the futuristic present.

The Washington Post

… as The Soft Cage: Surveillance in America from Slavery to the War on Terror makes clear, Parenti believes that the actions of the federal government since Sept.11 are only the latest in a long line of attempts to limit individual freedom through the use of surveillance. And it's not just government that is the culprit. To Parenti, corporations are just as big an offender. — Vincent J. Cannato
