Beginning with an introduction that defines and explores privacy as a social and psychological concept and continuing with articles that discuss the ramifications of privacy for social policy, psychology and theory, this book provides an in-depth and insightful look at privacy as a pertinent social concern. Articles included address transborder data flows of personal information: public opinion and U.S. legislative responses to privacy: medical and genetic privacy: e-commerce from a justice theory perspective: employment selection procedures and invasiveness: individuals' means of resisting and neutralizing surveillance: links between privacy, secrecy and deception: and an evaluation of the contributions of Westin's and Altman's theories of privacy.
