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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This collection is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to think rigorously about the meaning and purposes of privacy today.' Julie E. Cohen, Georgetown University Law Center
'With its assemblage of a global who's who of scholars, the long-awaited Social Dimensions of Privacy defines the state of the art in privacy scholarship. Transcending the individual interests and rights that privacy is usually understood to protect, this volume focuses instead on privacy's social meaning and value - using this perspective to help resolve various controversies about privacy protection in different social domains. Through their careful curation, Roessler and Mokrosinska not only reinvigorate debates about privacy, but elevate them to a level not seen since the publication of Schoeman's classic volume thirty years ago.' Ian Kerr, Canada Research Chair in Ethics, Law and Technology, University of Ottawa
