Reviews
"Societal perception of identification technology in general, and biometrics in particular, is a fascinating area of study. This book provides an excellent perspective on this topic, treating questions related to privacy, anonymity, trust, and paternalism in the context of biometrics. "America Identified" carefully discusses these issues and is, therefore, a welcome addition to the biometrics literature."--Arun Ross, Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, West Virginia University
"Biometric identification in all its forms is becoming increasingly important to our brave new world of constant surveillance. In this highly approachable, wonderfully insightful book, Lisa Nelson walks us through an issue that should be of concern to policy makers, science studies scholars, and indeed all citizens."--Geoffrey C. Bowker, Professor and Senior Scholar in Cyberscholarship, University of Pittsburgh
