Review

"An ambitious, illuminating, and convincing book. I have rarely been so excited and enlightened by the argument of a literary study as I was by this."--Edward Mendelson, Columbia University


Winner of the 45th annual James Russell Lowell Prize sponsored by the Modern Language Association.--James Russell Lowell Prize"Modern Language Association" (12/03/2014)

""The Watchman in Pieces" is an erudite, major addition to surveillance studies. Like Weber, Habermas, and Foucault, though with many differences, the authors are 'rethinking the history of modernity.'" Patrick Brantlinger, Indiana University
