With biometric applied sciences resembling fingerprinting and iris scanning, CCTV, microchips in identity playing cards and 'smart uniforms', steel detectors and law enforcement officials patrolling the varsity corridors with sniffer canine, it truly is transparent that colleges became more and more fortified.

Taylor outlines the phenomenon of the Surveillance institution, mapping the riding forces in the back of them and analyses the impression. The proof rising from empirical reviews means that usually those applied sciences do little to defend youth, don't characterize savings or elevated potency, yet serve to strip students in their privateness, undermine their belief in others and create an environment of suspicion.

This insightful study finally questions even if the incessant use of omnipresent technological surveillance has the power to displace the very construction blocks of democratic society. Taylor offers the varsity as a microcosm of society and invitations us to adventure a prophetic look into the way forward for the surveillance society.
