"Privacy: The Lost Right is an authoritative overview of privacy in today's intrusive world. By analyzing the history and context of modern common law, tort, statutory and constitutional protections for the individual, Jon L. Mills exposes the complex web of laws and policies that fail to provide privacy protection. Identifying specific violations against privacy rights, such as identity theft, tabloid journalism, closed-circuit television, blogs, and Right to Die, he also provides a comprehensive assessment of privacy and legal remedies in the United States. Mills uses his experience as a former policy maker formulating Florida's constitutional privacy provisions and as an attorney in celebrity privacy cases to provide the leader with an understanding of the increasing intrusions in privacy rights, the possible harm, and available protections."--BOOK JACKET.
