Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just as computers make it possible to accumulate vast amounts of information about every individual in our society

Book News Annotation:

Some would say that a half page or so would cover the subject entirely, but Henderson, a technical writer, is concerned not so much with personal privacy itself as the lack of it, the implications for individuals, and the measures to slow its further erosion. He explores who owns personal information, whether people have the right to decide who gets information and what they do with it, who is responsible when erroneous information leads to denial of service or arrest, and other issues. Like others in the series, the volume is intended to provide facts and views to support debate.
