For those interested:  Jeffrey Rosen has a review of Garret Keizer’s book, Privacy, in the Sunday New York Times Book Review. Here’s a snippet from the review:

Keizer is a contributing editor at Harper’s, where part of his short book began as an essay, and his particular contribution is to concentrate on the “economic subtext” of the destruction of privacy. “You and I belong to a society in which the gap between the rich and the poor is widening even as our personal privacy shrinks,” he writes, and he believes that “these two phenomena are connected.” He defines privacy as a form of “resistance to exploitation” and says the rich have more ability to assert it than the poor.
