Apologies for the self-promotion, but in time for this fall semester, Paul Schwartz, Marc Rotenberg, and I will be publishing a short paperback casebook of about 300 pages entitled PRIVACY, INFORMATION, AND TECHNOLOGY (Aspen Publishers, forthcoming mid-July 2006), ISBN: 0735562548.
This book is intended to be an inexpensive volume that adapts the cyberspace and technology materials from our full-length casebook, INFORMATION PRIVACY LAW (Aspen Publishers, 2d ed. 2006). The full-length casebook is about 1000 pages; the shorter paperback book is a more streamlined volume of about 300 pages, focusing exclusively on cyberspace, databases, and technology. Aspen informs me that this shorter paperback adaptation will probably sell at a price between $30 and $35.
The book might be useful as a supplement for cyberlaw or information law courses for instructors who want in-depth coverage of information privacy issues for between 2 to 5 weeks.
The table of contents is available here. A summary of the book’s contents is after the fold.
