This publication from the American Bar Association touches on aspects of privacy with respect to electronic and wire communication, telephone communications, and employee monitoring. The preface indicates that the purpose of the book is "... to provide key insights and outlines from some of the leading practitioners..." rather than an exhaustive examination. The introduction gives a brief history of the international and US legal developments in privacy law. Subsequent chapters discuss specific areas such as internet privacy, employee privacy, data security and destruction, and constitutional and statutory privacy rights. Extensive footnotes give the reader additional research avenues.
Chapters 335 and 335A contain information on invasion of privacy and the right to privacy. This electronic copy can only be checked out from home by government employees, but librarians may be able to provide a short excerpt to library patrons upon request.
