    Life After Privacy: Reclaiming Democracy in a Surveillance Society.Firmin DeBrabander - 2020 - Cambridge University Press.
    Privacy is gravely endangered in the digital age, and we, the digital citizens, are its principal threat, willingly surrendering it to avail ourselves of new technology, and granting the government and corporations immense power over us. In this highly original work, Firmin DeBrabander begins with this premise and asks how we can ensure and protect our freedom in the absence of privacy.
