The Road to Southend Pier, reviewed by Stephen Russell
"In his new book, subtitled "One Manâ??s Struggle Against a Surveillance Society," Ross Clark chronicles an attempt to walk from his East Anglia home to a Pier in Southend...all the while avoiding surveillance cameras and the other various instruments of Britian's so-called police state. In London, sometimes called the most surveilled city in the world, it is said an average pedestrian might find him or herself photographed more than 300 times per day. Along his way, Clark thoughtfully discusses some of the inconsistencies, inefficiencies, and absurdities of his countryâ??s security policies. His views, like those of most, are decidedly more interesting and complex. And of course it's true, when it comes to our security and privacy, we can do better...and should."
