The notion of personal privacy has been long present in American society. The Bill of Rights gave constitutional recognition to several privacy aspects, including the first amendment's freedom of expression and association. However, not to be overlooked are prohibitions against quartering troops in private homes, unwarranted searches and seizures, and self-incrimination. Despite significant ambiguity about many of the aspects of personal privacy, Americans have turned increasingly to Congress for safeguarding their liberties. This book presents a select overlook of personal privacy in America, its continual evolution, and its impact on society.
