MEDIA REVIEWS

"Amitai Etzioni starts his analysis of privacy in the age of big data with an unquestionable truth: the ease with which personal data can be collected, stored, and analyzed will transform our right to privacy. This volume is a valiant effort to define privacy in a way that starts with that truth. While I could hardly disagree more with his conclusions, the book is nonetheless a bracing and original look at a field that has been dominated by crypto-Luddites and adolescent fantasists." - Stewart Baker, a partner of Steptoe & Johnson LLP, USA; former first Assistant Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, USA, and the author of Skating on Stilts (2010)

"In Privacy in a Cyber Age, Amitai Etzioni opens a new digital page in the baffled privacy discourse, and insists that America rethinks the concept of privacy. Etzioni scrutinizes privacy law and practice through a liberal communitarian lens, calling for a careful balance of individual rights and the common good. The book weaves together theory and practice, law and society, resulting in a rich, thoughtful a much-needed cyber-age privacy doctrine." - Michael Birnhack, Professor of Law, Tel-Aviv University, Israel

"Privacy is not dead but needs to be reimagined. This is the core takeaway from Amitai Etzioni' s provocative book, Privacy in a Cyber Age. Highlighting the limits of mainstream privacy rules based on a 'reasonable expectation', Etzioni pushes us to rethink our understanding of privacy in a digital age. He stresses the need to balance concerns such as the sensitivity, volume, and exchange of collected information. The book will have a wide audience from academics to policy makers committed to building a free digital society." - Abraham Newman, Associate Professor in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, USA
