Editorial Reviews

Robert Brookshire
Bennett and Grant have put together a highly readable set of essays on the challenges to privacy in the information age. Collectively, the authors in this volume agree that current privacy protection legislation has not kept up with advances in technology and that the public is largely unaware of the extent to which privacy is threatened. Opportunities exist for policy makers and privacy advocates to address these problems, and this volume contains some guides for these efforts. It should be of interest to students, researchers, policy makers and privacy advocates who are involved in this rapidly changing mix of law, technology and ethics.
