U.S. national debate topic, 2015-2016. Surveillance

H.W. Wilson Company. (Added Author).

Summary: This volume examines the National Forensic League's 2015/16 Policy Debate, which answers the question: "Should the United States substantially curtail domestic surveillance?" From Edward Snowden's controversial NSA leaks to ongoing arguments regarding domestic surveillance drones and police body cameras, the topic of government surveillance on U.S. citizens is thoroughly explored in this volume. Articles investigate such key issues as the legality of domestic surveillance, the right to privacy-and to what extent citizens can expect privacy in the digital age and in the context of the "war on terror"-as well as the relative effectiveness of the program in counter-terrorism efforts and matters of national security. Articles also weigh the economic costs of the program to federal and local governments and uncover the history of domestic surveillance and how it has evolved over time in light of complex developments in both international relations and technology.--Publisher information
