You may not be a terrorist, but you don't want people to know about that thing you do on the internet none the less. It's private. "American Privacy: The 400-Year History of Our Most Contested Right" discusses privacy throughout American history, from colonial times to the actions of George W. Bush, which have brought the topic to the lime light once more. With the rise of technology allowing for subtle spying on just about anyone, laws to protect people from the prying eyes of other people and their government seem more necessary than ever. "American Privacy" is a fascinating look into the raging privacy debate and it makes for informative and educational reading for community and college social issues collections.
