Acknowledgments
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

ix Acknowledgments If surveillance has multiple dimensions, including those of “care” and “control,” I can safely say that this book has benefited from the most caring forms of surveillance by others. The international Surveillance Studies Network and the editorial board of the journal Surveillance & Society deserve special mention for generously welcoming me into their community, challenging me to develop my scholarship, and allowing me to collaboratively shape the direction of the growing field of surveillance studies. I am especially indebted to Kirstie Ball, Kevin Haggerty, Hille Koskela, David Lyon, David Phillips, David Murakami Wood, Dean Wilson, and Nils Zurawski. Other scholars have gone out of their way to mentor me. John Gilliom, Gary Marx, and Michael Musheno have been invaluable in this regard, each reading significant amounts of my writing and pushing me to improve. Many others have graciously provided comments on my work and offered muchneeded advice and support along the way, including David Altheide, Lynn Chancer, Simon Cole, Martin French, Oscar Gandy, Randy Hanson, Leon Hempel, Tad Hirsch, Aaron Kupchik, Pat Lauderdale, Shoshana Magnet, Cecilia Menjívar, Hector Postigo, Priscilla Regan, James Rule, Minas Samatas, Bill Staples, Rodolfo Torres, Michael Welch, Tyler Wall, and Jennifer Whitson. Much labor goes into the production of a book, and oftentimes it is hidden in the final product. With the intention of rendering some of that labor visible, I am glad to acknowledge research assistance from Jennifer Murray and Michael Coyle, who both braved Arizona’s cruel sun to conduct some of the interviews for my projects. I must also recognize the many research informants who gave their time and shared their experiences with us. Laura Dugas expertly transcribed all the interviews. Finally, the series editor, Ray Michalowski, and the editorial team at Rutgers University Press, especially Adi Hovav, have made the production of this book a pleasure. The research for this project was supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. SES-0423672. Additionally, I thank the following journals for permitting the use of previously published chapters or chapter sections: Criminal Justice Matters, Cultural Studies ⬍⫽⬎Critical Methodologies, Media, Culture, & Society, Social Justice, Social Semiotics, The Communication Review, Theoretical Criminology, and Urban Affairs Review. An abbreviated version of chapter 2 was originally published in the book Reading 24: TV Against the Clock, edited by Steven Peacock and published by I. B. Tauris. As always, I have extreme gratitude for my family and friends, who fully encourage the work that I do. In particular, this book has grown—as have I— from the many critical insights and unflagging support of my life partner, Jill Fisher. I look forward to returning the favor for many years to come.
