Keywords: It is increasingly argued that contemporary capitalist nations have become 'surveillance societies' in which surveillance related activities are embedded as the core mode of organization, production and societal order (Lyon 1994, 2001, 2007). But what does it mean to live in a surveillance society and what economic, political and social relations are produced? These are the key questions addressed in this chapter.
