turow-aisles.jpgJoseph Turow, Ph.D., Robert Lewis Shayon Professor of Communication and Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at the Annenberg School, discusses his new book The Aisles Have Eyes: How Retailers Track Your Shopping, Strip Your Privacy and Define Your Power, a revealing and surprising look at the ways that aggressive consumer advertising and tracking, already pervasive online, are coming to a retail store near you.

"It’s all thoroughly researched and clearly presented with detailed evidence and fascinating peeks inside the retail industry. Much of this information is startling and even chilling, particularly when Turow shows how retail data-tracking can enable discrimination and societal stratification." --Publisher's Weekly
