Proloog salajase infokogumise juurde

Hoidun siinses voos raamatutele viitamast, kuid siin teen erandi, sest viimase aja sõnumid meediast viitavad, et “Riigikohtu otsus telefoniside andmete osas võib mõjutada Tallinna Sadama protsessi” ja keskkriminaalpolitsei juhile on omistatud väide, et “Riigikohtu eilne otsus mitte lubada uurimisasutustel kasutada kriminaalmenetlustes telekomiettevõtete kogutavaid kõneeristusi ja muid kasutajate andmeid võib tuua tagasilööke uurimistes“.
Niisiis leidiski Routledge kirjastus publitseeritud raamat siin oma koha. Salajase infokogumise vastu huvitatule võib see raamat siiski suurt huvi pakkuda oma laia haarde tõttu. On aru saadav, et siin ei ole võimalik anda raamatuülevaadet, kuid näiteks seitsmendast peatükist (“Civil liberties, state police wartime measures, and the case of “the Six””) leiab lugeja muuhulgas näiteks ka huvitavat infot Karl Säre tegevuse kohta.
Allpool veel mõned tsitaadid lugemishimu suurendamiseks:

Lk 1:

This peculiar and somewhat comical incident, which was recorded by the Danish Foreign Ministry in a confidential memo, sheds light upon a number of crucial features in the system of secret cable surveillance that developed throughout Scandinavia during the First World War.

Lk 53:

I discuss selected historical documents related to sex in Paris and Versailles during the late part of the reign of Louis XIV (1682–1715) to demonstrate how written language worked as one of the main substrates of surveillance in the Ancien Régime. How did police and state authorities obtain information about sexual transgressions? How did information about sexual surveillance flow through the hierarchies of power? How was this information used for the purposes of state governance? And what role did religious discourse play in these practices of sexual surveillance?

Viide Jeremy Benthamile (lk 70):

the more constantly the persons to be inspected are under the eyes of the persons who should inspect them, the more perfectly will the purpose of the establishment have been attained. Ideal perfection, if that were the object, would require that each person should actually be in that predicament, during every instant of time. This being impossible, the next thing to be wished for is, that, at every instant, seeing reason to believe as much, and not being able to satisfy himself to the contrary, he should conceive himself to be so

Informaatoritest (lk 147):

The Stasi’s repression of its own population is legendary, not only in scale but also in intensity. The agency deployed some 180,000 informants in 1989 – as its eyes and ears – to assist with policing citizens the regime deemed to be “negative-hostile”. Like the Stasi, the Securitate also enlisted the services of informants, whose numbers increased to 144,289 in 1989

Vot see võiks mõtlemist ergutada (lk 189):

Of course, I will not claim that State-based surveillance is d pearing, but I really do believe that it is necessary to go beyond the “epistemological obstacle” and to de-center analysis from the State ideal-type. What seems more important to me is what is happening beside, below, and beyond the State as mentioned in the schema given before.
