Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Offers a truly original approach to our thinking about the relationship between the society and the individual in an age of rapidly expanding technological surveillance. The book opens new vistas and is thought-provoking even for those who have long inhabited the many fields of study that the book encompasses."

"Dennis Bailey’s analysis of privacy and society is comprehensive, lively, and persuasive. Whether you are a citizen concerned about freedom or a seasoned privacy advocate, buy this book. The dialogue it offers concerning liberty and technology in a post-9/11 world is important and engaging."

"A magnificent addition to the ongoing discussion about the proper balance between privacy and transparency. Bailey’s comprehensive and thoughtful review of current practices and his provocative proposals for the future are sure to stir debate. This book should be in the library of everyone concerned with civil liberties in the post-9/11 age."
