We all know that Google stores huge amounts of information about everyone who uses its search tools, that Amazon can recommend new books to us based on our past purchases, and that the U.S. government engaged in many data-mining activities during the Bush administration to acquire information about us, including involving telecommunications companies in monitoring our phone calls (currently the subject of a bill in Congress). Control over access to our bodies and to special places, like our homes, has traditionally been the focus of concerns about privacy, but access to information about us is raising new challenges for those anxious to protect our privacy. In Privacy Rights, Adam Moore adds informational privacy to physical and spatial privacy as fundamental to developing a general theory of privacy that is well grounded morally and legally.

Editorial Reviews

“In his Privacy Rights: Moral and Legal Foundations, Adam Moore has taken on the ambitious challenge of offering readers nothing less than ‘a philosophical defense for privacy rights.’ . . . Moore offers an analysis that should be of interest to scholars and students in a variety of academic disciplines as well as to participants in the public policy arena. . . . All readers—and potential readers—of Privacy Rights should applaud the contribution that the author has made to the hybrid literature on privacy, and his imaginative philosophical justifications for particular public policy positions.”—John W. Johnson, Review of Politics
