Ian Kerr and his talented colleagues explore the intricacies of privacy, identity and anonymity applying fresh analytical approaches, revealing the limitations of several traditional concepts, and identifying new insights on these critically important issues. The editors have effectively fused a range of multidisciplinary perspectives to enrich and sharpen the analysis and intellectual contribution. This book is likely to generate more informed and nuanced dialogue among scholars, technologists, and policymakers."
