Description:
<p>Would you believe that RCMP operatives used to spy on Tupperware parties? In the 1950s and &#8217;60s they did. They also monitored high school students, gays and lesbians, trade unionists, left-wing political groups, feminists, consumer&#8217;s associations, Black activists, First Nations people, and Quebec sovereignists.</p>

<p>The establishment of a tenacious Canadian security state came as no accident. On the contrary, the highest levels of government and the police, along with non-governmental interests and institutions, were involved in a concerted campaign. The security state grouped ordinary Canadians into dozens of political stereotypes and labelled them as threats.</p>

<p>

<em>Whose National Security?</em> probes the security state&#8217;s ideologies and hidden agendas, and sheds light on threats to democracy that persist to the present day. The contributors&#8217; varied approaches open up avenues for reconceptualizing the nature of spying.</p>
