About this book

This book lays out the foundation of a privacy doctrine suitable to the cyber age. It limits the volume, sensitivity, and secondary analysis that can be carried out. In studying these matters, the book examines the privacy issues raised by the NSA, publication of state secrets, and DNA usage.

Reviews

"Amitai Etzioni starts his analysis of privacy in the age of big data with an unquestionable truth: the ease with which personal data can be collected, stored, and analyzed will transform our right to privacy. This volume is a valiant effort to define privacy in a way that starts with that truth. While I could hardly disagree more with his conclusions, the book is nonetheless a bracing and original look at a field that has been dominated by crypto-Luddites and adolescent fantasists." - Stewart Baker, a partner of Steptoe & Johnson LLP, USA; former first Assistant Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, USA, and the author of Skating on Stilts (2010)

"In Privacy in a Cyber Age, Amitai Etzioni opens a new digital page in the baffled privacy discourse, and insists that America rethinks the concept of privacy. Etzioni scrutinizes privacy law and practice through a liberal communitarian lens, calling for a careful balance of individual rights and the common good. The book weaves together theory and practice, law and society, resulting in a rich, thoughtful a much-needed cyber-age privacy doctrine." - Michael Birnhack, Professor of Law, Tel-Aviv University, Israel

"Privacy is not dead but needs to be reimagined. This is the core takeaway from Amitai Etzioni' s provocative book, Privacy in a Cyber Age. Highlighting the limits of mainstream privacy rules based on a 'reasonable expectation', Etzioni pushes us to rethink our understanding of privacy in a digital age. He stresses the need to balance concerns such as the sensitivity, volume, and exchange of collected information. The book will have a wide audience from academics to policy makers committed to building a free digital society." - Abraham Newman, Associate Professor in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, USA
