The Fight for Privacy

Protecting Dignity, Identity and Love in our Digital Age

  • Danielle Citron


A major big-think book from a talented legal mind, coalescing multiple areas of privacy concern into a new understanding of how we can (and why we should) protect our private worlds within the modern digital spaces we inhabit

In The Privacy Myth, Citron takes the conversation about technology and privacy out of the boardroom and op-eds to reach readers where we are - in our bathrooms and bedrooms; with our families, our lovers, and our kids; in all the parts of our lives we assume are untouchable - and to show us that privacy, as we think we know it, is largely already gone.

The boundary that once protected our core intimate lives from outside interests is an artifact of the 20th century. In the 21st, we have embraced a vast array of technology that enables access into our lives - including access to us. As Citron shows, wherever we live, laws have failed miserably to keep up with corporate or individual violators, letting our privacy wash out with the technological tide. And the erosion of intimate privacy in particular, Citron argues, holds immense toxic power to transform our lives and our societies for the worse (and already has).

With vivid examples drawn from interviews with victims, activists, and lawmakers from around the world, the book will show that the most private aspects of our lives, which were once completely out of reach, are now under constant surveillance.
