Author reading and conversation: "Spying On Democracy: Government Surveillance, Corporate Power, and Public Resistance"

Join author Heidi Boghosian, executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, in a conversation with C. Clark Kissinger, manager of Revolution Books, about her newest book "Spying On Democracy."

"It's about time someone reverses the spy lens, and exposes the corporations and government agencies behind a new wave of surveillance... The material here is unsettling, but Boghosian's message is not that we should attempt to hide in the shadows; it's that we must be out front, loud...."
-- Will Potter, author Green Is the New Red: An Insider's Account of a Social Movement Under Siege

"In a dozen short, punchy, and very readable chapters, Boghosian paints a picture of an increasingly integrated, government-corporate surveillance hydra. . . . Boghosian combines an activist’s commitment and first-person experiences--along with an extensive knowledge of court decisions, government reports, whistleblower revelations, and media accounts--to tell her compelling story."
--David Rosen, The Brooklyn Rail
