In the post-9/11 era, media and security have become increasingly intertwined as techniques of filtering, sorting, surveillance and keywording become essential elements of national defense. In this book, Lisa Parks explores the complex relations between media and security, using the term "coverage" to develop a conceptual framework for understanding their interplay. At the heart of Parks's argument is an examination of the seemingly benign media technologies-such as Powerpoint, YouTube, and Google Earth-that have been used to extend the security regime into the spaces of everyday life.
