  The Michie Company Introduces Data Privacy Law: A Study of United
  States Data Protection by  Paul M. Schwartz and Joel R. Reidenberg
  Data Privacy Law: A Study of United States Data Protection is the 
  first book to analyze comprehensively U.S. fair information 
  practices law as it pertains to data protection issues in both 
  the public and private sectors.
  Data Privacy Law was underwritten by the European Commission in 
  preparation for the issuance of its Directive 95/46/EC (October 
  24, 1995) on the protection of individuals with regard to the 
  processing of personal data and on the free movement of such 
  data.   The book compares coherently the fair information 
  practices of the United States with principles common to 
  divergent legal systems.
  Data Privacy Law has important practical applications and will 
  help companies that employ transborder telecommunications, 
  conduct interjurisdictional financial transactions, or advertise 
  across borders to define their own data protection strategies to 
  ensure that expectations of fair information practices are met.  
  The book will assist lawyers, government regulators and scholars 
  to understand data flows in both the public and private sectors.
  Author Paul M. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the University of 
  Arkansas School of Law (Fayetteville), has been a guest professor 
  at the University of Nantes, a Fulbright Senior Lecturer at the 
  Goethe University?s Research Center for Data Protection, and a 
  Research Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and of 
  the Harry Guggenheim Foundation.  He has provided advice and 
  testimony to governmental bodies in the United States and Europe. 
   At present, he serves as Special Advisor to a study of health 
  care applications of the National Information Infrastructure 
  carried out by the National Academy of Science's National 
  Research Council. 
  Author Joel R. Reidenberg is Associate Professor of Law at 
  Fordham University School of Law.  He serves as chair of the 
  Section on Computers and Law of the Association of American Law 
  Schools and is a Fellow of the Cyberspace Law Institute.  
  Formerly, he practiced in the Washington, D.C. office of 
  Debevoise & Plimpton, where he worked with the international 
  telecommunications group on European telecommunications 
  liberalization and competition law issues, data protection 
  regulation, and intellectual property issues.  Professor 
  Reidenberg served as an advisor to the U.S. Congress Office of 
  Technology Assessment and has testified on information privacy 
  before various government bodies.
  Both authors have written and lectured extensively on privacy and 
  information technology law.  
  Priced at $90.00, this book will be a welcome resource for policy 
  makers, legal practitioners and scholars grappling with data 
  protection issues.
