Although this book is aimed at the "young adult" market , there is a lot for politicians, policy makers and technologists to learn from it.
Will today's teenagers actually fight for their human rights against the creeping totalitarian police surveillance state, which the terrorists threat has managed to manipulate our weak politicians into inflicting on us ?
Will dome of the anti-surveillance and anonymity techniques described in Little Brother be taken up by the games console / iPod generations , or have they been lulled into introspective passivity and inaction ?
Little Brother, the text of which is available online in various formats, for free, is well worth giving to your teenage or young adult relatives as a Christmas present.
