Inside China's Quest to Launch
a New Era of Social Control

Josh Chin and Liza Lin



Josh Chin and Liza Lin’s Surveillance State is a trailblazing work of investigative nonfiction on life in China’s burgeoning surveillance state

“A truly groundbreaking investigation. Anyone who cares about free will cannot afford to miss this.” —Evan Osnos, The New Yorker

“Surveillance State could not be more timely, both as a gripping, suspense-filled tale of what is actually happening to Uyghurs in China and as a description of digital dictatorship that makes abstractions like predictive analytics, facial and voice recognition technology, and integrated information systems terrifyingly concrete.” –Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO of New America

“A study of the Chinese government’s sweeping surveillance program.…The underside of digital technology on full, frightening display.”
