|The Fight for Privacy (W. W. Norton & Company)|
|Friday, 04 November 2022|
In this book, subtitled "Protecting Dignity, Identity, and Love in the Digital Age", Danielle Citron argues that we need to protect what she calls intimate privacy. Citron looks at the way personal information becomes valuable data, to corporations know exactly when to flash that ad for a new drug or pregnancy test, or used by social and political forces to manipulate what you think and who you trust, leveraging sensitive secrets and deepfake videos to ruin or silence opponents.
Drawing on in-depth interviews with victims, activists, and advocates, Citron brings this headline issue home for readers by weaving together stories about the ways that corporate and individual violators exploit privacy loopholes, and what we need to do about it.
