What is the source of this generalised principle of eavesdropping? This work traces the long history of moles from the Bible, through Jeremy Bentham's 'panacoustic' project, all the way to the intelligence-gathering network called 'Echelon.' Together with this archeology of auditory surveillance, Szendy offers an engaging account of spycraft's representations in literature (Sophocles, Shakespeare, Joyce, Kafka, Borges), opera (Monteverdi, Mozart, Berg), and film (Lang, Hitchcock, Coppola, De Palma)."@en ;
