Submission + - Understanding Privacy (understanding-privacy.com)

privacyprof writes: "Slashdot readers familiar with Professor Daniel J. Solove's essay,"I've Got Nothing to Hide and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy" might be interested in his new book, Understanding Privacy , which develops many of the ideas in that essay. As rapidly changing technology makes information increasingly available, there has been a great struggle to define privacy, with many conceding that the task is virtually impossible. The book argues there are multiple forms of privacy, related to one another by family resemblances. It explains the framework for understanding privacy which was briefly discussed in the "Nothing to Hide" essay. The book covers the framework in greater depth and explores how it applies to a wide array of privacy issues, such as data mining, surveillance, data security, and consumer privacy. Chapter 1 is available for free here."
