Raymond Wacks, "Privacy: A Very Short Introduction" ISBN: 0199556539 2010 EPUB/MOBI 176 pages 682 KB/786 KB. It is widely recognized that our privacy is under threat. The protection of personal data represents a classic instance of the law's struggle to keep abreast with technology, as the "information revolution" has spawned problems that test the ability of the law to provide adequate protection against abuse. The book concludes that, while under attack from many quarters, privacy remains an essential human right, recognized as such by many international organizations.

Since the famous Warren and Brandeis essay nearly a century ago, the confusion generated by the traditional account of "privacy" continues to obstruct its satisfactory legal protection. Looking at the issues of breach of confidence, public disclosure of private facts, collection and computerization of personal data, and electronic or other intrusions on individual privacy, Wacks here presents a less obscure, alternative analysis of privacy that is centered on the use and misuse of "personal information" about an individual.
