Privacy Revisited articulates the legal meanings of privacy and dignity through the lens of comparative law, and argues that the concept of privacy requires a more systematic approach if it is to be useful in framing and protecting certain fundamental autonomy interests.

  • The Disappearing First Amendment

    Jr Krotoszynski Ronald J

    The standard account of the First Amendment presupposes that the Supreme Court has consistently expanded the scope of free speech rights over time. This account holds true in some areas, but not in others. In this illuminating work, Ronald J. Krot...

Austin Sarat, Associate Dean of the Faculty, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Jurisprudence & Political Science, and Director, Mellon Project on Student-Faculty Research, Amherst College Privacy Revisited is a truly remarkable book. Successfully deploying an analytic approach which is both comparative and contextual is a wonderful achievement in itself, but Krotoszynski does more. He offers a framework for thinking about privacy as a global human right. In so doing, he shows that the way privacy is understood in the United States means that privacy is protected neither 'as reliably or as comprehensively' as it is in other liberal
democracies. This argument is bracing and persuasive, and it makes a singularly important contribution to scholarship and public discourse.

Mark Tushnet, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law, Harvard Law School Professor Krotoszynski provides a valuable overview of how several constitutional systems accommodate competing interests in privacy, speech, and democracy. He shows how scholarship in comparative law can help one think about one's own legal system while remaining sensitive to the different cultural and institutional settings of each nation's law. A very useful contribution.

David S. Law, Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science, Washington University in St. Louis In an increasingly globalized world, in which we carry in our pockets the ability to broadcast intimate information around the world instantaneously, the need to understand how other countries define and protect privacy has never been greater. Professor Krotoszynski's Privacy Revisited is a learned and wide-ranging lesson in how and why we remain very far from a global legal consensus on the scope and meaning of privacy.

Neil Richards, Professor of Law, Washington University It's commonplace to note that American law is exceptional in its under-protection of privacy rights in relation to the rest of the industrialized, digitized, networked world. But the nature and reasons for American "privacy exceptionalism" have rarely received sustained examination. In this careful, erudite, and insightful book, Krotoszynski explains how privacy rights vary between the US, Canada, South Africa, Britain, and continental Europe, and how that variation
maps onto different protections for freedom of expression. Digging deeply into both the legal doctrine and broader legal cultures of these societies, Krotoszynski illuminates our understanding of how different societies can protect privacy in such different ways, even as our networked economies bring
the world's legal cultures ever closer. A global information society needs interoperable privacy rules, but all too often the world's legal systems talk past each other.

James Q. Whitman, Ford Foundation Professor of Comparative and Foreign Law, Yale Law School This is a wise book that offers a welcome dose of comparative law learning. It is indispensable reading for anyone ...
