Series Editor: Judith Bessant, RMIT University (Judith.Bessant@rmit.edu.au)

This challenging new book series explores the way governments and key institutions from across the political spectrum have intensified their efforts to criminalize and regulate traditional and new forms of political dissent. The series features major contributions from the social sciences, law and legal studies, media studies, the arts and philosophy to document what happens when the state and other power elites regard the actions of political activists as illegal.

This timely book series explores the legal, political and ethical implications when governments now routinely engage in electronic and digital surveillance, outlaw public assembly and freedom of movement in physical and virtual space and prosecute activists. The books in this series are a must read for anyone interested in the future of democracy.

To propose a book for this series please email Judith.Bessant@rmit.edu.au
