Synopsis

Praise for this edition of the timeless classic, The Right To Privacy by Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren:

Feel like someone’s watching? You’re probably right. Your anonymity is an illusion.

The trend toward constant surveillance is disturbing. Supporters often argue, "If you're obeying the law, you have nothing to fear." But is that true?

While many refuse to acknowledge the possibility of an worldwide Orwellian nightmare, others know that creeping totalitarianism thrives best when it moves quietly in the shadows.

In The Right To Privacy, Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren pointed an ominous warning finger at how our civil rights were at risk and needed to be protected against the abuses of illicit surveillance. They transformed the way we think of privacy rights in common law, and a citizen’s right to be left alone.

A foreword by Philip Dossick makes this superb new edition a standout.
—Alexis Scoppa
