This study, written in the context of its first publication in
1970, discusses and documents the invasion of privacy by the
corporation and the social institution in the search for efficiency
in information processing. Discussing areas such as the impact of
the computer on administration, privacy and the storage on
information, the authors assess the technical and social
feasibility of constructing integrated data banks to cover the
details of populations. The book was hugely influential both in
terms of scholarship and legislation, and the years following saw
the introduction of the Data Protection Act of 1984, which was then
consolidated by the Act of 1998. The topics under discussion remain
of great concern to the public in our increasingly web-based world,
ensuring the continued relevance of this title to academics and
students with an interest in data protection and public
