This is a dark book, but one which should be read.

-- Kurt Jensen * FORUM *

Big Data Surveillance and Security Intelligence: The Canadian Case tackles some of the most pressing issues of our time - issues that can only be expected to grow in size and complexity...[it] is an essential and revealing examination of the tug-of-war between civil liberties and national security in our fast-moving digital age.

-- Scott Costen * The Sidebar *
This wide-ranging collection interrogates the intelligence-gathering practices of Canadian security agencies in the shift to "big data" surveillance methods. [This book] fills a need for literature on a topic where information about the Canadian context is relatively scarce. -- Erica Friesen, Queen's University * Canadian Law Library Review *
