Revue de presse
This publication is so much more than merely welcome to the fold: a publication of this calibre has been so long overdue that it will no doubt quickly become a much sought after (or even mandatory) text for many of those in departments of information science and law. This is, however, not a practitioners handbook - but then it is not intended to be. (Callum Liddle, SCRIPTed)
An admirably clear and comprehensive analysis of data privacy law around the world. It provides not only an overview of the complexity and ambiguity of this developing subject, but detailed analysis, perceptive comment, and criticism as well. It will be read with benefit by students, practitioners, and many others who have an interest in what happens to their personal data and how it is, and might be, regulated. (Charles D. Raab, Professor of Government, University of Edinburgh)
