Although the word 'privacy' does not appear in the U.S. Constitution, most Americans believe that their right to privacy is not just legally protected but fundamental to their lives & this country's democratic system. But how well are we protected, & what are we protected from? Through a seamless interweaving of landmark cases, lesser-known but equally important trial decisions, & dozens of anecdotal narratives, the authors make an urgent & complicated issue absorbing & accessible. They delve into 6 general areas: privacy vs. law enforcement, privacy & your self, privacy vs. the press, privacy vs. the voyeur, privacy in the workplace, & privacy & information.
