Susan Landau, Surveillance or Security? The Risks Posed by New Wire-

Winner of the 2012 Surveillance Studies Book Prize, given by the
Surveillance Studies Network. Comments on the book include: “Thisis an absolutely mandatory source book for everyone interested inthe would-be conflicts,” Peter Neumann (RISKS); “Landau’s well-researched writing is a superb resource,” Hilarie Orman Cipher (IEEECommittee on Security and Privacy); “the definitive text on the topic. . . a title that needs to be read,” Ben Rothke, Slashdot; “the mate-rial is presented in way that is accessible for the general public yetspecific enough to guide policymakers in Congress and the Executivebranch—for whom it should be required reading,” Suzanne Spaulding,former Executive Director, National Commission on Terrorism; “Su-san Landau has taken an exceptionally complex but vital subject andpresented it in a clear and compelling way,” Jonathan Zittrain, Har-vard Law School. “There are few books that comprehensively coverthe subtle and complex interactions between technology, law, and pub-lic policy, and this is one of them. . . This book . . . will definitely be thestandard reference for years to come.” Earl Boebert.

Winner, IEEE-USA Award for Distinguished Literary ContributionsFurthering Public Understanding of the Profession, 1999, and McGan-non Book Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in CommunicationPolicy Research, Donald McGannon Communication Research Cen-ter (Fordham University), 1998.Privacy on the Line attracted interna-tional attention. I was on NPR three times to discuss the book, andDiffie and I were on CSPAN’s “About Books” program. The book wasreviewed in Business Week,Daily Telegraph (British national newspa-per), The Guardian (British national newspaper), The Sciences, andNotices of the American Mathematical Society,” and received shortreviews in Science News, New Scientist, European Business Report,On Wall Street among others. Review comments include “This bookshould be considered urgent reading,” Robert Bruen in Cipher (IEEECommittee on Security and Privacy); “[a] gem,” The Guardian; “it’shard to imagine a better introduction to an issue that will be with usfor years to come,” Stewart Baker (former NSA counsel), in Notices ofthe American Math Society, and a listing as “recommended reading”in Scientific American. The Electronic Privacy Information Centerdistributed eighty copies to members of Congress.
