Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rampant violation of online privacy is a problem of epic proportions—and impossible to stamp out. Online Privacy: A Reference Handbook provides a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand investigation of the history of and controversies surrounding online privacy. It overviews the most critical issues involving topics such as social networking and online medical records. Along the way, this book shares insights and information from experts active in the field and exposes many misconceptions about what is and isn't considered private in the online world.

Authors Dixon and Gellman begin with an overview of online privacy that elucidates why this 21st century issue is so critical. They provide key guideposts throughout the book that allow readers to grasp these complex and ever-changing issues, addressing topics that include what comprises online privacy today, what protections exist in current law, and current challenges in international online privacy. The authors also present practical expert advice, providing measures and strategies that readers can take to protect themselves.

Book News Annotation:

After a chapter describing historical and social issues related to online privacy, this work by Gellman (privacy consultant) and Dixon (World Privacy Forum) functions primarily as a reference text. Much of the focus is on the legal status in the US of data protection on the Internet. This is interspersed with a chronology of online privacy developments and brief biographical sketches. An extensive list of resources, both in print and online, is also presented. The volume is most appropriate for an undergraduate library. A glossary is included.
