Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This brilliantly written and eminently readable introduction to the right of privacy as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution is written for upper-level high school and college students; however, its scholarly and well-balanced research penned in both legal terminology and everyday English translation make it a suitable vehicle for all but the most advanced students of the topic . . . strongly recommended for all high school libraries, undergraduate college libraries, and all but the smallest public libraries." - American Reference Books Annual

"Recommended. General readers and lower-division undergraduates." - Choice
