Description

The Bush administrationas aWar on Terrora ushered in a new logic of surveillance, suppressing public dissent and mobilizing both afaitha and afear.a Elmer and Opel reveal the underlying logic of preemption whereby threats must be eliminated before they materialize, drawing on social theories and media analyses to assess the wider impact of this new era of security and political order. They track three emerging strategies: zoning or incarceration of protesters, expansion of human surveillance techniques by police and law enforcement agencies, and deployment of astealtha forms of crowd control. Addressing the logic of preemption, Elmer and Opel lay the groundwork for more effective resistance.
