"This volume promises to make important contributions to policy and scholarly thinking about developments in information technologies and changes in social, cultural and personal practices and values. 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."
--Priscilla M. Regan, George Mason University

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Please, keep that in mind as that is the reviewer viewpoint.
Reviewer's subjective opinion (at the time of writing) is based solely on the
contents of ch 6 and 7, Part I - Privacy.
Foremost, this work (or, rather, a compilation) is not on information
It is a nicely worded philosophical tractate on the needs of an individual
(privacy, anonymity) in an affluent hypothetical society, presenting a gap
analysis between as-is and the ideal outlined target.
This book might serve as a good source of reasoning in discussions between
privacy and security officers.
Rating: since the reviewer viewpoint differs significantly from that of the authors,
please, disregard the rating, enforced by the host.
Among things that do not sit well with the reviewer is a lack of references to
a well established/common sources, as in case with definition of "data surveillance"
taken from Clark's "Privacy Introductions and Definitions" (2006) ==> 4.
