Summary
This essential book discusses if technological developments threaten privacy. Essays ask if security measures infringe on privacy rights, and if medical privacy is adequately protected. The final chapter explores how privacy should be protected. The essays and works are arranged in a pro versus con format, so that readers can benefit from more than one viewpoint while analyzing each controversy and establishing their own opinions on the right to and protection of privacy.
