Abstract

We argue here that the book in focus presents an advance in the field of surveillance studies dealing with the mass media, because, however its fixation upon the concept, it relates research and conduct its reasoning in a way that reveals the eventual surmount of it by informational processes in which the body but also subjectivity are tending to lose its relevance in the maintenance of the social order required systemically from the digital media.
