An internationally recognized legal expert provides a road map for understanding―and defending―privacy in the twenty-first century.
Danielle Keats Citron takes the conversation about technology and privacy out of the boardrooms and op-eds to reach readers where we are―in bathrooms and bedrooms, with our families and our lovers, in the parts of our lives we assume are untouchable―and shows us that privacy, as we think we know it, is largely already gone.
From nonconsensual pornography to online extortion, to the sale of our data for profit, we are vulnerable to abuse. As Citron reveals, wherever we live, laws have failed miserably to keep up with corporate or individual violators, letting our privacy wash out with the technological tide. With vivid examples drawn from interviews with victims, activists, and lawmakers from around the world, The Fight to Privacy argues urgently and forcefully for a reassessment of privacy as a human right. And, as a legal scholar and expert, Citron is the perfect person to show us the way to a happier, better protected future.
