Lessons from the Identity Trail

lessons-from-the-identity-trail.jpgThere’s a terrific new book of essays about privacy out from Oxford University Press — LESSONS FROM THE IDENTITY TRAIL: ANONYMITY, PRIVACY AND IDENTITY IN A NETWORKED SOCIETY (Oxford University Press 2009). It’s edited by Ian Kerr, Valerie Steeves, and Carole Lucock. The essays are fascinating and are written by a number of very prominent privacy scholars. Highly recommended!
