Personal Rights in the Surveillance Society(amazon)
Charles J. Sykes (View Bio)
Hardcover: St. Martin's Press, 1999.
"Sykes provides a timely analysis of the challenges to privacy posed by technological change, media aggressiveness, governmental and business intrusion and even our own propensity to share information about ourselves. [He] illustrate[s] how pervasive the threat to privacy is.... [An] informative tour." — Publishers Weekly
"Sykes gives us all good reason to be paranoid. Using examples from everyday activities — shopping on the Internet, sending e-mail, using cell phones, passing by security cameras, securing medical records, and conducting ATM transactions — Sykes sets the scene for an eye-opening discourse on the ‘surveillance society' and the ‘exposure culture.'" — Library Journal
