    Praise for Privacy and the Media

    Privacy and the Media is a thoughtful survey of the privacy landscape. McStay reviews the intricate tensions and seeming contradictions to offer an accessible book for anyone curious about the contemporary debates in privacy.’

    danah boyd, founder of Data & Society

    ‘The only book that addresses the full spectrum of the innovation-privacy dynamic, ranging from advertising to intelligence to wearables. It is timely and necessary; essential reading.’

    Gus Hosein, Privacy International

    ‘McStay’s great achievement here is to confront many of the pertinent and complex questions about media and privacy in a style that is both authoritative and easy to read. He provides an excellent overview of the perennial debates and considers the implications on privacy of an increasingly data-driven media environment. His book will prove an excellent companion for all students of this fascinating and crucial topic.’

    Mireille Hildebrandt, Vrije Universiteit Brussel

    ‘This pleasingly accessible book tackles all the major questions that arise in a world whose lifeblood is our personal information: liberty, choice, transparency, control. McStay argues that privacy is “not about isolation, going off-grid or being a digital hermit”. Rather, it is about managing our online lives and controlling how much others know about us. This book persuades me more than ever that privacy is a branch of ethics; it is concerned with the age-old relationship between the self and the other. It will serve as a great introduction to informational privacy, not just for media studies students and privacy lawyers, but for any information rights professional needing a deeper understanding of the subject.’

    Iain Bourne, Information Commissioner’s Office

    ‘Clearly and accessibly written, this book is a great resource for anyone interested in the broad range of ways in which privacy and contemporary media are entangled and in the big picture of privacy-media relations today. It challenges us to take privacy seriously as a media – and mediation – issue. I will definitely be assigning it for my students.’

    Helen Kennedy, University of Sheffield
