You are being watched. Whether through your phone or your car or your credit card, caught on a CCTV camera or tracked through your online viewing history, government agencies know where you are, and are quietly collecting your most intimate, mundane, and personal information. Is this even legal? Habeas Data shows how the explosive growth of surveillance technology has outpaced our understanding of the ethics, mores, and laws of privacy. Award-winning tech reporter Cyrus Farivar makes the case by taking ten historic court decisions that defined our privacy rights and matching them against the capabilities of modern technology. It's an approach that combines the charge of a legal thriller with the shock of the daily headlines. "[A] lively history."— The New Yorker "A lively catalog of privacy-related court cases and laws that have arisen alongside new technologies."— The New York Review of Books "Farivar's work is essential, smart and cogent."— Cory Doctorow, co-editor, Boing Boing "Habeas Data should be required reading for all public officials who want to better understand the near-future of privacy and surveillance."— Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland, California
