Written by a select international group of leading privacy scholars, Social Dimensions of Privacy endorses and develops an innovative approach to privacy. By debating topical privacy cases in their specific research areas, the contributors explore the new privacy-sensitive areas: legal scholars and political theorists discuss the European and American approaches to privacy regulation; sociologists explore new forms of surveillance and privacy on social network sites; and philosophers revisit feminist critiques of privacy, discuss markets in personal data, issues of privacy in health care and democratic politics. The broad interdisciplinary character of the volume will be of interest to readers from a variety of scientific disciplines who are concerned with privacy and data protection issues.

Judith Wagner DeCew provides a solid philosophical foundation for legal discussions of privacy by articulating and unifying diverse arguments on the right to privacy and on how it should be guaranteed in various contemporary contexts. Philosophers and legal theorists tend either to define privacy narrowly or to abandon privacy as conceptually incoherent, she claims. In order to assess how far privacy should extend, and determine how the wide range of specific cases can be reconciled, DeCew surveys the history of the notion of privacy as it first evolved in American tort law and constitutional law and then analyzes current characterizations. In different contexts, privacy has been defined on the basis of information, autonomy, property, and intimacy. DeCew's broader claim is that privacy has fundamental value because it allows us to create ourselves as individuals, offering us freedom from judgment, scrutiny, and the pressure to conform. Feminist theorists often view privacy as a tool for shielding abuses. DeCew responds to this feminist critique of privacy, as well as addressing the issues of abortion and of gay and lesbian sexuality in the context of specific landmark legal cases. In discussions of Roe v. Wade, Bowers v. Hardwick, and the Hart/Devlin debates on decriminalization of homosexuality and prostitution, DeCew applies her broad theory to sexual and reproductive privacy, anti-sodomy laws, and the legislation and enforcement of morals. She finally discusses the intersection of privacy with public safety concerns, such as drug testing, and in light of new communication technologies, such as caller ID.

This broad-ranging examination of privacy law considers the challenges faced by the law in changing technological, commercial and social environments. It encompasses three overlapping areas of analysis : privacy protection under the general law; legislative measures for data protection in digital communications networks; and the influence of transnational agreements and other pressures towards harmonised privacy standards. Leading internationally recognised authors discuss developments across these three areas in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

Das 'Dark Net' ist eine Unterwelt. Es besteht aus den geheimsten und verschwiegensten Ecken des verschlüsselten Webs. Ab und zu gerät ein Teil dieser Unterwelt in die Schlagzeilen, beispielsweise wenn eine Plattform für Online-Drogenhandel zerschlagen wird. Abgesehen davon wissen wir jedoch so gut wie nichts darüber. Bis heute. Basierend auf umfangreichen Recherchen, exklusiven Interviews und schockierendem, authentischem Material zeigt Jamie Bartlett, wie sich völlige Anonymität auf Menschen auswirken kann, und porträtiert faszinierende, abstoßende oder auch gefährliche Subkulturen, darunter Trolle und Pädophile, Dealer und Hacker, Extremisten, Bitcoin-Programmierer und Bürgerwehren.

Ein kritischer Report über ein Thema, das immer brisanter wird Die rasante Entwicklung der Informationstechnologien geht einher mit einem wachsenden Kontrollbedürfnis. Peter Schaar warnt vor der Tendenz, den Einzelnen als Risikofaktor zu betrachten, der beobachtet, registriert und bewertet werden muss. Er skizziert, wie sich demokratische Staaten aus Angst vor Angriffen von außen und vor den eigenen Bürgern zu Überwachungsgesellschaften entwickeln. Ohne unser Wissen werden immer mehr Daten von uns im Internet gesammelt, zu »Profilen« verarbeitet und zu wirtschaftlichen und Informationszwecken ausgewertet. Passdaten sollen weitergegeben werden, private PCs werden von Geheimdiensten durchsucht. Ein brisantes Gemisch, das unsere Demokratie im Kern bedroht. Peter Schaar ist seit 2003 Bundesbeauftragter für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit.

In this wide-ranging collection of never before published essays, distinguished scholars in the fields of philosophy and economics examine such questions as whether testimony is a basic source of knowledge, the degree to which notions of a good argument are determined by speakers and their audiences, the role of individual biases in the development of science, and the social aspects of group belief and group justification. The collection ends with the first comprehensive bibliography of social epistemology.

This new book by Beate Rossler is a work of real quality and originality on an extremely topical issue: the issue of privacy and the relations between the private and the public. Rossler investigates the reasons why we value privacy and why we ought to value it. In the context of modern, liberal societies, Rossler develops a theory of the private which links privacy and autonomy in a constitutive way: privacy is a necessary condition to lead an autonomous life. The book develops a theory of freedom and autonomy which sees the ability to pose the "practical question" of how one wants to live, of what a person strives to be, at the centre of the modern idea of autonomy. The question of privacy is emerging as an increasingly important topic in social and political theory and is central to many current debates in law, the media and politics. The Value of Privacy will be widely recognised to be a classic contribution to the subject.

Investigating the relationship between early Buddhism and the society in which it developed, this study analyzes aspects of the social, political, religious, and economic environment of the Buddha's era, including the Buddhist system of stratification; the social origins of the bhikkhus and the upasakas; the role of power; the category of gahapati; and the Buddhist concept of the ideal socio-political system.
