"Every passing day people become more conscious of the ways that our dealings with the digital both offer new opportunities and shut them off. This refreshing book shrewdly indicates ways forward, by showing that while ubiquitous surveillance often limits our options, critical approaches to data feed into emerging modes of digital citizenship that offer real potential for intervention. Insightful, stimulating and realistic, it is also a model of seamless co-authorship."David Lyon, Queen's University"The authors bring surveillance and critical data studies together to make an important contribution to the understanding of citizenship within datafied societies. Critically, their approach considers ubiquitous datafication not only in relation to the expansion of state power and control but also the emergence of new practices of citizen dissent and resistance."Evelyn Ruppert, Goldsmiths, University of London
