Zusatztext At last a wonderfully readable analysis of the law and practice of the right of privacy. The book brilliantly explains the many aspects of the uses and abuses of our personal data. I found the authors' account of the digital revolution and the development of data protection up to and including the GDPR both fascinating and compelling. But there is much more to this excellent book: the media! political control! memory! the use of DNA! polling! profiling etc. I like the inclusion of a proposed law that could - and should - be adopted to protect our right of privacy. Strongly recommended. Informationen zum Autor Andrea Monti is Adjunct Professor of Public Policy at the University of Chieti in Italy! and writer in the field of law and technology.Raymond Wacks is Emeritus Professor of Law and Legal Theory at the University of Hong Kong! and a leading international authority on privacy. He has published widely on the subject for four decades. Timely analysis seeking to reveal the essential nature of the right to privacy and, critically, what privacy is not. Zusammenfassung The concept of privacy has long been confused and incoherent. The right to privacy has been applied promiscuously to an alarmingly wide-ranging assortment of issues including free speech! political consent! abortion! contraception! sexual preference! noise! discrimination! and pornography. The conventional definition of privacy! and attempts to evolve a 'privacy-as-a-fence' approach! are unable to deal effectively with the technological advances that have significantly altered the way information is collected! stored! and communicated.

Zusammenfassung
The concept of privacy has long been confused and incoherent. The right to privacy has been applied promiscuously to an alarmingly wide-ranging assortment of issues including free speech, political consent, abortion, contraception, sexual preference, noise, discrimination, and pornography. The conventional definition of privacy, and attempts to evolve a 'privacy-as-a-fence' approach, are unable to deal effectively with the technological advances that have significantly altered the way information is collected, stored, and communicated. Social media such as Facebook pose searching questions about the use and protection of personal information and reveal the limits of conceiving the right to privacy as synonymous with data protection. The recent European Union's GDPR seeks to enforce greater protection of personal information, but the overlap with privacy has further obscured its core meaning. This book traces these troubling developments, and seeks to reveal the essential nature of privacy and, critically, what privacy is not.
