George Orwell envisioned Big Brother as an outgrowth of a looming totalitarian state, but in this timely survey Robert O'Harrow Jr. portrays a surveillance society that's less centralized and more a joint public/private venture. Indeed, the most frightening aspect of the Washington Post reporter's thoroughly researched and naggingly disquieting chronicle lies in the matter-of-fact nature of information hunters and gatherers and the insatiable systems they've concocted. Here is a world where data is gathered by relatively unheralded organizations that smooth the way for commercial entities to find the good customers and avoid dicey ones. Government of course too has an interest in the data that's been mined. Information is power, especially when trying to find the bad guys. The mutually compatible skills and needs shared by private and public snoopers were fusing prior to the attacks of 9/11, but the process has since gone into hyperdrive. O'Harrow weaves together vignettes to record the development of the "security-industrial complex," taking pains to personalize his chronicle of a movement that's remained (perhaps purposefully) faceless. Recognizing the appeal of state-of-the-art systems that can track down a murderer/rapist with heretofore unimaginable speed, the author recognizes, too, that the same devices can mistakenly destroy reputations and cast a pall over a free society. In a post-9/11 world where homeland security often trumps personal liberty, this work is an eye-opener for those who take their privacy for granted. --Steven Stolder -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


"Mr. O'Harrow provides in these pages an authoritative and vivid account of the emergence of a 'security-industrial complex' and the far-reaching consequences for ordinary Americans...an alarming vision of the future uncannily reminiscent of the world imagined by Orwell in 1984."
-- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Today, we are constantly tagged, monitored, studied, sorted and tracked by a vast array of institutions and organizations -- private and public. As Robert O'Harrow, Jr., details in No Place to Hide, it is worse than we could ever have imagined. In this revealing book, O'Harrow makes clear that Americans need to think seriously about these issues now -- before it is too late for us to decide that we care."
-- The Washington Post

"No Place to Hide might just do for privacy protection what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did for environmental protection. [O'Harrow's] is the work of a careful, thorough, enterprising reporter."
-- William Safire, The New York Times Book Review

Kirkus Reviews From Starbucks to the subway to the sidewalk, you are being watched....O'Harrow voices a clear concern over the ethics of such snooping...persuasively delineating how that information is abused and how unavoidable mistakes have profound consequences. A skillful chart of a surveillance society out of control.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Everything you dont REALLY want to know 9. März 2006
Von Carlton Ward - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
All the things you were afraid of in regards to how easily your personal information is accessed and a few horror stories as well. If you are mistaken for someone else or had your ID stolen, you have a long uphill battle to get it all cleared as 1 company corrects the mistake, there are several more that will not and when the original company updates their database again, they may retrive their update from a company that has not cleared you and then enter the mistake all over again - so you will have taken 1 small step forward to only have it reversed again.

Robert tells you who (and its a list thats growing everyday) is compiling your personal info and and how it is being used and sold to and the ways that the companies/government are using it. The thing that troubled me most is that although the government supposedly has restrictions as to what/how they obtain your personal information, private companies are not bound by any restrictions. By making your life more convenient - your information is being stored, catagorized, rated & updated with your every transaction, loan request and legal issues.

Knowledge is power and this book gives its readers plenty of it to at least know what we are up against.

This review will also go into a database shared by many companies.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Tedious 30. März 2006
Von barbre - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a software developer I found most of the information in this book to be something less than earth shattering. Basically, there are companies that specialize in data mining as much information on us as they can. The present administration is drooling over the possibility to use this information. A large percentage of the information stored in the databases is in error. That's pretty much the book. Should we be concerned? Yes, but not of the information existing because its mostly public information anyway that is being linked in creativie ways. I'm not an advocate for this by any means but I'm not terribly fearful of it either. What does concern me, and should you, is how much of the information is wrong and how difficult it is to get these companies to fix it. To me, that was the greatest point the book made.

As for government spying. We know now that the government is surveying us in much greater and more Orwellian ways than we would have thought possible. Unfortunately, this is what I wanted to learn more about and is pretty much missing from the book. Also, there is no "solution" provided. How can we protect ourselves?

Mainly, I was disapointed be because every person mentioned in the book has a drawn out biography provided about them. I really didn't care how the CEO of a data mining company grew up. I wanted to learn about the subject of the book, not history of indivuals.

Its not a bad book, but I grew tired of the biographies and the content didn't surprise me or frighten me enough to be real impressed.

3.0 von 5 Sternen As of February 2010 this book has nothing to say that already has not been said 1000 times before 10. Februar 2010
Von Yoda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

WHen this book came out, in 2005, it was an expose on the databases and incredible amounts of information available on each of us. Most of this was collected by the private sector (especially credit card and credit ratings agencies). There is also elaboration on how this information is increasingly "mined" for marketing purposes and, worse, for law "enforcement" purposes. The book also drove home the point that this information was readily available and could be purchased even by private individuals (i.e., not on themselves but on others) for about $40.

All of the above was somewhat a revelation, at least to general public, back in 2005. Unfortunately this information, for anyone who has been reading even any type of decent newspaper, is pretty much out there. The book provides no really new information on how our personal information has been being used or gathered since it was written in 2005. Hence the best description for this book is, in a nutshell, "dated".

A real eye opener. I now assume I am always being "observed","measured" or just plain old watched. Now I leave little messages for them. In your face creeps...

Good book on an important subject. Get it read it and know a little more about your wonderful country.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting material, but a slow read. 3. August 2013
Von Lloyd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book contains material that is important for all Americans to understand, but it is proving difficult to read. It's not holding my interest like I thought it would.
