Product Overview

An examination of privacy and the evolution of communication, from broken sealing wax to high-tech wiretapping
A sweeping story of the right to privacy as it sped along colonial postal routes, telegraph wires, and even today''s fiber-optic cables, "American Privacy" traces the lineage of cultural norms and legal mandates that have swirled around the Fourth Amendment since its adoption. Legally, technologically, and historically grounded, Frederick Lane''s book presents a vivid and penetrating exploration that, in the words of people''s historian Howard Zinn, "challenges us to defend our most basic rights."
