(p.1) Chapter I Introduction

Jon L. Mills

Oxford University Press

Understanding the current state of privacy requires an analysis of a series of legal and cultural issues. This chapter provides a brief overview of those issues, which are discussed in depth later in the book. First, it considers the meaning of “privacy.” Cultural challenges to personal privacy, and the legal protections available to individuals are also discussed. Finally, it considers how privacy can be better protected in light of the limitations of traditional protections under constitutional, tort, property, and statutory law.
