Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-Issues related to privacy have heightened since September 11. The chilling effect of the Patriot Act has confused some people and angered others. For this reason, books dealing with privacy and security are greatly needed so that young patrons can form their own opinions regarding this issue. Fridell has written an easy-to-read overview of specific topics like searches and seizures, credit-card fraud, identity theft, student records, drug testing, medical records, and library records. There are warnings about protecting personal information, and case studies regarding challenges to students' rights in high schools. Though brief, the glossary is an important feature because it defines terms like "private facts tort," "probable cause," "reasonable suspicion standard," "slippery slope argument," and "voyeur"-terms students need to know to understand the serious implications of privacy violations. The last chapter, "Privacy and Terrorism," covers homeland security, Operation TIPS (Terrorist Information and Prevention System), airport searches, and TIA (Total Information Awareness) and privacy. Eight chapters cannot possibly cover this very complicated subject, but students may gain enough knowledge to understand the issues brought forth on the nightly news and in newspapers.-Pat Scales, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    No Easy Answer in this Debate

    Desire for privacy, need for security. Where does one end and the other begin? Ron Fridell explores this issue that affects our lives everyday in Privacy vs. Security: Your Rights in Conflict. Fridell includes many court cases that have tested the limits, and he traces our understanding of what privacy is and how that idea has changed over time. September 11, 2001 catapulted this debate into public consciousness, and it continues to be an issue with no easy answer. Fridell provides a timeline, further reading, and Internet addresses to take the reader to resources beyond this book.
