Spooked: The Truth About Intelligence in Australia (Paperback)Daniel Baldino (editor)
- We can order this
In this book a prominent group of writers including Michael Mori, Ben Saul, Anne Aly and Peter Leahy lay bare the facts about spying and security in post-9/11 Australia.
Their compelling book cuts through panic and fear-mongering to ask hard questions: Is ASIO unaccountable? Is the money spent on security worth it? Is cyber-terrorism an urgent threat? Are Australia's spies up to the job? Is WikiLeaks good for human rights? Are Australians trading their privacy for a false sense of security? Spooked untangles the half-truths, conspiracy theories and controversies about the `war on terror', and is a welcome antidote to misinformation and alarm.
