In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA and its partners had been engaging in warrantless mass surveillance, using the internet and cellphone data, and driven by fear of terrorism under the sign of ’security’. In this compelling account, surveillance expert David Lyon guides the reader through Snowden’s ongoing disclosures: the technological shifts involved, the steady rise of invisible monitoring of innocent citizens, the collusion of government agencies and for-profit companies and the implications for how we conceive of privacy in a democratic society infused by the lure of big data. Lyon discusses the distinct global reactions to Snowden and shows why some basic issues must be faced: how we frame surveillance, and the place of the human in a digital world. Surveillance after Snowden is crucial reading for anyone interested in politics, technology and society.

Noah Stark is no ordinary archaeologist. Since birth, he has possessed unique power and abilities. He’s stronger and can see and hear better than normal humans. His body heals in moments from most injuries. He views it as a curse. His mother changed their names years ago to avoid detection and exploitation by the military, pharmaceutical companies and villainous entities seeking power and profit. Believing that his abilities are somehow connected to his ancient ancestry, Noah turns to archaeology to try to get some answers to his questions. He gets unexpected assistance from a beautiful and talented young reporter, Jet Nobel, whom he met briefly while they were teens. They discover incredible truths revealing the possible origin of Noah’s extreme physiological anomalies. Could his powers be traced back to the DNA of a supernatural being?

However, through research done by Noah’s late father a stunning revelation changes everything.
