Publisher Comments:

In andlt;iandgt;No Place to Hide,andlt;/iandgt; award-winning Washington Post reporter Robert O'Harrow, Jr., pulls back the curtain on an unsettling trend: the emergence of a data-driven surveillance society intent on giving us the conveniences and services we crave, like cell phones, discount cards, and electronic toll passes, while watching us more closely than ever before. He shows that since the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, the information industry giants have been enlisted as private intelligence services for homeland security. And at a time when companies routinely collect billions of details about nearly every American adult, andlt;iandgt;No Place to Hideandlt;/iandgt; shines a bright light on the sorry state of information security, revealing how people can lose control of their privacy and identities at any moment. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Now with a new afterword that details the latest security breaches and the government's failing efforts to stop them, O'Harrow shows us that, in this new world of high-tech domestic intelligence, there is literally no place to hide. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; As O'Harrow writes, "This book is all about you and your personal information — and the story isn't pretty."
