Intelligence fusion, mass surveillance and social regulation.

Sociologist Brendan McQaude explores the rise of interagency intelligence gathering fusion centers in the US - as the post-9/11 surveillance apparatus adapted to decarceral trends by boosting surveillance across society, it created an institutional monitoring network as a tool of social control for the protection of state power and capital.

Brendan is author of Pacifying the Homeland: Intelligence Fusion and Mass Supervision from University of California Press.
