The Right to Privacy

The Right to Privacy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can the police strip-search a woman who has been arrested for a minor traffic violation? Can a magazine publish an embarrassing photo of you without your permission? Does your boss have the right to read your email? Can a company monitor its employees' off-the-job lifestyles--and fire those who drink, smoke, or live with a partner of the same sex? Although the word privacy does not appear in the Constitution, most of us believe that we have an inalienable right to be left alone. Yet in arenas that range from the battlefield of abortion to the information highway, privacy is under siege. In this eye-opening and sometimes hair-raising book, Alderman and Kennedy survey hundreds of recent cases in which ordinary citizens have come up against the intrusions of government, businesses, the news media, and their own neighbors. At once shocking and instructive, up-to-date and rich in historical perspective, The Right to Private is an invaluable guide to one of the most charged issues of our time.

"Anyone hoping to understand the sometimes precarious state of privacy in modern America should start by reading this book."--Washington Post Book World

"Skillfully weaves together unfamiliar, dramatic case histories...a book with impressive breadth."--Time

Synopsis:

The authors of In Our Defense combine landmark cases, trial decisions, and anecdotal narratives into an exploration of the right of privacy in one's personal life, the workplace, the media, and more. Reprint. 60,000 first printing.
