The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World  
Bruce Schneier

Data and Goliath is a shocking look at the way in which corporations and governments track and control us and how we can fight back. Schneier reveals the full extent of surveillance, censorship and propaganda in society today, examining the risks of cybercrime, cyberterrorism and cyberwar. He shares technological, legal and social solutions that can help to shape a more equal, private and secure world. This is a book everyone with an Internet connection, bank account or smart device needs to read.

"Bruce Schneier...grasps this revolution's true dimensions...Schneier paints a picture of the big-data revolution that is dark, but compelling; one in which the conveniences of our digitized world have devalued privacy."
Nature

"In "Data and Goliath" Bruce Schneier, a computer-security expert, does a fine job of laying out the problems caused by this compulsive collection of personal data...Some recent books on digital privacy have been written by journalists, with an emphasis on sugary narrative instead of original analysis. This one comes from a practitioner, and offers a deep but accessible look at surveillance in the post-Snowden, big-data era."
