The Privacy Pirates

A must for every American - the key to how your Privacy is being exploited and what you can do about it.


In this book, former NSA intelligence officer Dr Leslie Gruis explains the origins of American privacy, and how deeply connected it is to freedom and the American dream. She discusses some of the controversial cases, covering everything from attempts to protect privacy rights – so far, largely unsuccessful – to abuses of privacy by large companies and accusations of privacy invasion by government. All of it is explained in plain language, with humor and clarity, and accompanied at the start of every chapter by the compelling story of 14-year-old Alice and her family as they attempt to negotiate a modern world full of Privacy Pirates.
