Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816038708, Hardcover)"Privacy in the Information Age examines the growing controversy of diminishing privacy as advancements in computer technology facilitate the monitoring and collection of information from people's daily lives. Everything from medical records to e-mail correspondence and financial statements can be reviewed by other people without the knowledge or consent of those whose information it is. These records can also be stored in database files. Eventually, all aspects of an individual's life may be gathered in a single computer file. While this could be a powerful and useful tool, it raises many questions. Who has the right to this information? How can one control what sort of information is being collected and whether or not that information is accurate? Author Harry Henderson examines the history of how technology has created this dilemma and discusses the current status of privacy laws."--BOOK JACKET.
