CHATTER Dispatches From the Secret World of Global Eavesdropping

by | Read by Patrick Radden Keefe

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Patrick Radden Keefe's investigation into the world surveillance network spans the history of eavesdropping and intelligence collection. Keefe puts forth a balanced, honest overview that is informative and entertaining, and he asks all the right questions about what privacy means and how much license a government should have to listen to its citizens in the post-9/11 world. Reading his own work, Keefe communicates the right amount of humor, indignation, and irony necessary to tackle this weighty subject without coming across as either paranoid or blasé. His voice reflects his youth yet conveys an assuredness and authority without any of the stuffiness one might associate with multiple degrees and scholarly research.
