Lack Of Knowledge Of What And How of knowledge of what and how are giving away protection of our personal privacy for the sake of increasing security It should balance like a scale but we have been allowing it to tip so towards the security side because we as a nation have been allowing local law enforcement and legislators throughout the years to bend and or break the laws so as to pick and choose their own interpretations of what the 1st and or 4th amendments support He gives the reader a multitude of information to look at in terms of the advances in the private uses in technology and also the ways of snooping and gathering information legally and or illegally on anyone and how things have changed dramatically since the drafting of the Constitution and unfortunately the 1st and 4th amendments haven t adapted to accommodate all the new technologies and all the protections needed with these new technologies with all our personal privacy all over out there in cyberspace on electronic clouds smart phones portable laptops and tablets We need protections put in place so than ever before in our history
There is a lot to ponder in this book from his writing about the creation of is a lot to ponder in this book from his writing about the creation of growth of the FBI CIA NSA DHS Department of Homeland Security ECPA Electronic Communications Privacy Act FISA Foreign Intelligences Securities Act Patriot Act 2001 and the newest one SCA Stored Communications Act and how they all work but not together as a team Our Government has grown to be so powerful that a person needs to be very careful in what they want to Bringing the Outside In just look at or research via the internet and web or better yet even what you say on the phone chances are someone s watching or listening I would venture to say that the majority of us would say that we have nothing to hide as the book title indicates yet we all want to our privacy and security protected from prying eyes including our own government After all that was the premise behind our forefathers drafting the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights to guarantee citizens privacy security and protection from each other local law enforcement and even our National Government as sort of a checks and balance system To ensure that due processes are followed correctly through proper warrants subpoenas etc Unfortunately though over the years the Constitution has been and continues to be picked apart in attempts to render it useless and making the Government untouchable this is occurring almost on a daily basis with the 1st 2nd and 4th Amendment s all in the name Security by local law enforcement National Security Agency Central Intelligence FBI and Foreign Intelligence to nameust a few among the numerous guises used I enjoyed this book and recommend it as a very good read and give it 4 stars When I first started reading it it was fairly dry to boring and seemed to be tailored a little for the law student but as I progressed through it I could tell that he was trying to keep it in layman s terms and have a little levity to keep you interested I recommend it especially if anyone having thoughts or doubts about the government and its ever and many times overreaching power. The privacy security debate from the Revolution to the present day He explains how the law protects privacy and examines concerns with new technologies He then points out the failings of our current system and offers specific remedies Nothing to Hide makes a powerful and compelling case for reaching a better balance between privacy and security and reveals why doing so is essential to protect our freedom and democra. ,
Very understandable for the general adult population The book has dual purpose On one side the author informs the reader of the current status of US citizen privacy and security rights and what reader of the current status of US citizen privacy and security rights and what be done to improve the current situation On the other side the purpose is to persuade the reader that the current way the privacy of citizens is being handled is unacceptable and regulation needs to be turned up The book is broken down into 4 main sections or points that Solove presents and defends Part one How We Should Asses and Balance the Values of Privacy and Security focuses on defining what security and privacy is Solove 19 Here he argues that privacy is not ust an individual right and that deference due to desperation or incompetence is dangerous Part two focuses on how current laws regarding privacy should be handled or changed during times of crisis such as matters related to national security Here Solove showcases his knowledge regarding the topic of focus from all sides He shows that he is aware and not ignorant of other views by presenting arguments that are against his such as the pendulum national security and war power arguments He evaluates what they realistically accomplish to understand if they provide a valid basis for comprising privacy in the name of security Part three focuses Solove is one of the
Best Scholars Of Americanscholars "Of American Law And "American law and a great public service in writing for a broad range of audiences from practitioner to scholar to citizen Nothing To Hide is a good overview of arguments for privacy protections against the national security state and for some audiences it s probably a wonderful bookIt reads like it s written at the 5th grade level however and the very simple sentences grate horribly after a while I found the book generally too basic to be useful to me and the writing level painful This book easy to read and understand it was written for the general audiences enjoyment Nonfiction and done well It s based a lot on the laws in the 1st and 4th amendments that protect or should protect our rights to privacy and security of those rights The misconceptions that most people including law enforcement and Government tend to have about those laws He gives details to all the different forms of communication to include regular mail in an envelope to the newest technological electronic versions and how it all can be intercepted and used against us or without us even knowing by way of hackers or even our very own Government and not have any protection for the private citizen under the law His intent is to enlighten us to the fact that we don t have to sacrifice privacy for the added security Many think that we do and we all know that we definitely have already In the Preface professor Solove said that he wrote this book to focus on general arguments and principals rather than typical minutiae of course the details are important but even important are the concepts related and themes of the debate I hope this book will put to rest certain arguments so that the debate can move ahead in fruitful ways Although I have primarily focused on American Law the arguments and ideas in the debates are universal His book it s very compelling and eye opening it s also little frightening based on all the information he gives you there Rrectly as a zero sum game in which we are forced to choose between one value and the other Why can't we have both In this concise and accessible book Solove exposes the fallacies of many pro security arguments that have skewed law and policy to favor security at the expense of privacy Protecting privacy isn't fatal to security measures; it merely involves adeuate oversight and regulation Solove traces the history of. Technology is moving forward at a lightning pace and policy is not keeping up An eye opening review of 4th Amendment protections for privacy in the internet age And readable Nothing to Hide is a super fantastic easy to read book about the argument between whether safetysecurity or privacy should be held in
regard within society The book examines the government agencies and social concerns of the argument and how the argument plays out in This book clearly and concisely describes the arguments surrounding privacy versus security and effectively makes the case that the United States should not nor does it need to abandon its values to be secure His arguments are the perfect shield against the onslaught of all or nothing thinking about security or privacy I highly recommend this book Solove offers a "Balanced Discussion Of The Supposed Conflicts Between "discussion of the supposed conflicts between and privacy A theme running throughout is a dismantling of the notions that privacy secrecy and that privacy is of only personal and not societal interest The latter argument has been used by the government and often affirmed by the courts as a means of denying standing to those who would sue to force changes in government surveillance of citizensThough Solove mentions some of the abuses of the state secrets claims that are being used and often by the federal government I think he could have highlighted those abuses prominently We have good evidence that when state secrets are used as a means of preventing udicial review of government actions the claim probably has to do with covering up illegal acts than it has with security Solove alludes to this and in fact spends several pages discussing it but I think it would have been worthwhile making this a pervasive themeIn any case this is a book that might be persuasive to some of the security is everything crowd so Solove has done a great service with this book Easy read on hard topics A book with arguments against the whole tranuilityhigher regard within society the book examines the
Over Privacy Position Tahtprivacy position taht superb in nature I can t say I could have thought of even half of these on my ownI mean the idea that we can actually enact most of the security measures while maintaining our privacy And the idea that the right to privacyand other amendments are meant to protect us during times of national emergencieslike warso to neglect them during these times doesn t make senseis eye opening But with that being said the book was very repetitive and despite being a layman s book on this subject very boring Usually the legal books are the most informative but boringtedious readsbut this one although not tedious was on the boring sideLastly the chapters weren tidk the book was kinda all over the place topic wiselike each chapter could have been it s own subject sometimes A Review of Solove s Book on Privacy Security This book focuses on the argument that privacy does not have to be a direct tradeoff for security Solove discusses the misconceptions that are present among the masses in our US society regarding privacy and security He presents his views in contrast to other views and argues for his points using the constitutional amendments facts and statistics The book is really easy to read It does not overwhelm the reader with political and legislative argon It uses language that is. If you've got nothing to hide many people say you shouldn't worry about government surveillance Others argue that we must sacrifice privacy for security But as Daniel J Solove argues in this important book these arguments and many others are flawed They are based on mistaken views about what it means to protect privacy and the costs and benefits of doing so The debate between privacy and security has been framed inco.
