About the Authors
  • Edward Snowden's leaks exposed fundamental differences in the ways Americans and Europeans approach the issues of privacy and intelligence gathering. Featuring commentary from leading commentators, scholars and practitioners from both sides of the Atlantic, the book documents and explains these differences, summarized in these terms: Europeans should 'grow up' and Americans should 'obey the law'. The book starts with a collection of chapters acknowledging that Snowden's revelations require us to rethink prevailing theories concerning privacy and intelligence gathering, explaining the differences and uncertainty regarding those aspects. An impressive range of experts reflect on the law and policy of the NSA-Affair, documenting its fundamentally transnational dimension, which is the real location of the transatlantic dialogue on privacy and intelligence gathering. The conclusive chapters explain the dramatic transatlantic differences that emerged from the NSA-Affair with a collection of comparative cultural commentary.

    • Documents the different legal and social responses to the Snowden leaks in the US and Europe
    • Provides policy-makers and scholars with an accurate picture of the differing approaches to the issues of privacy and intelligence-gathering
    • Surveys the legal frameworks for privacy and intelligence oversight in the US and Europe

    'The book makes an outstanding contribution to the field of transatlantic privacy relations, by presenting a range of diverging views - by US and German scholars -, thus drawing a rich pool of thought-provoking conclusions on similar issues that may differ substantially.' Maria Tzanou, Computer and Telecommunications Law Review
