This book is a feminist intervention into the burgeoning field of surveillance studies, formally launching the field of feminist surveillance studies. Explicitly framing the concern with widespread surveillance as not a new phenomenon, this book demonstrates the importance of thinking beyond contemporary developments in new technologies and the intensification of surveillance since the 1980s, tracing the history of surveillance back to organized forms of state control such as settler colonialism, the management of women's reproductive autonomy, the regulation of sexuality and the institutionalized scrutiny of those living in poverty.
