Library acquisition decision-makers will consider this book a welcomed addition to their research collection.” –American Reference Books Annual “…thorough discussion of the background of the 27 Amendments will be a useful addition to public and academic library collections.” –Library Journal EDITION Privacy Rights in the Digital Age This encyclopedia discusses the practical, political, psychological, and philosophical challenges we face as technological advances have changed the landscape of traditional notions of privacy. “Big Data” applications of every sort now permeate our social and civic lives: Orwellian government surveillance in the name of national security; Supreme Court-sanctioned collection of DNA “fingerprints” of criminal suspects; targeted online advertisements tailored to our supposed interests and desires on the basis of our personal online histories; wearable computers with camera and recording features; and GPS systems build into our cell phones that track every movement—such developments no longer shock or even very much surprise us. After considering all this, the real question remains: How are we to maintain privacy rights without sacrificing our technological interests? In over 600 easy-to-understand, information-packed pages, this encyclopedia provides: • Over 250 original articles that cover Laws, Legal Cases, Events, Organizations, Individuals, Technology, and important Terms • Coverage is international in scope, with an emphasis on U.S. Legal, Technological, Educational, Corporate, and Social Contexts • An informative Introduction provides readers with a solid background of the subject matter • Additional materials include Primary Source Documents. Chronology, Glossary, Bibliography and Subject Index Designed for undergraduates, high school students, and general non-specialists, Privacy Rights in the Digital Age presents a current, balanced, and reliable collection of material to map the emerging privacy terrain in an easy-to-understand, thought-provoking manner.
