The War on Privacy

“In today’s globalized society, the war on terror has negatively affected privacy rights not just in the United States, but everywhere.  When privacy rights are curtailed around the world, American efforts to spread freedom and democracy are hindered, and as a consequence, Americans are less secure in the world.  Ironically, the erosion of individual privacy rights, here and abroad, has been happening in the name of enhancing national security.

This book sheds light on the apparent contradiction and argues that governments must do more to preserve privacy rights while endeavoring to protect their citizens against future terrorist attacks.” — book jacket
