This encyclopedia discusses the practical, political, psychological, and philosophical challenges we face as technological advances have changed the landscape of traditional notions of privacy. "Big Data" applications of every sort now permeate our social and civic lives: Orwellian government surveillance in the name of national security, Supreme Court-sanctioned collection of DNA fingerprints of criminal suspects, targeted online ads tailored to our interests based on personal search histories, wearable computers with camera and recording features, and GPS devices built into cell phones that track our every movement. Such developments no longer shock or even very much surprise us, but how does all of this affect the world we live in, as well as the future of personal security?

In over 600 pages, Privacy Rights in the Digital Age provides:

Designed for undergraduates, high school students, and general non-specialists, Privacy Rights in the Digital Age presents a current, balanced, and reliable collection of material to map the emerging privacy terrain in an easy-to-understand, thought-provoking manner.
