CRISP is delighted to announce a new book series ‘Routledge Studies in Surveillance’. The series is edited by its directors, Kirstie Ball, William Webster and Charles Raab and produced in conjunction with Routledge. Studies of surveillance take place in many academic disciplines and it is time for a coherent series which represents the sheer diversity of surveillance scholarship.
Human flourishing is aided and hindered by surveillance systems. Religious ethics, directed towards an authentic way of life, have, therefore, a significant interest in how Big Data and other surveillance strategies shape men and women.
