Information insecurity : privacy under siege by Brendan January( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet gives us information, communication options, shopping opportunities, entertainment, and much more---all at the touch of a fingertip and much of it for free. But in exchange for these benefits, we may be losing a basic right: the right to privacy. By clicking to accept website user agreements, we often allow companies to track our activities online and to share our data with outside groups. In addition, the police and government agencies can also track people online---and this tracking is sometimes done secretly, without user agreements or search warrants. Privacy laws and the US Constitution are supposed to protect privacy in the United States, as are laws and conventions in other parts of the world. But judicial and legal systems have not kept pace with technology. And until laws catch up, users enter a legal gray area when they communicate digitally---an arena in which their most private conversations might not be protected from intrusion. Such intrusion can be dangerous: government agencies can use information obtained via digital spying to harass, arrest, or imprison citizens. Other groups can use private digital data to discriminate in banking, retail, housing, and other businesses. Around the world, critics are sounding the alarm about digital privacy. Many have called for stricter controls on data tracking. What rights do you have when it comes to privacy online? How can you be a smart cyber citizen and protect your personal digital data? These questions are at the heart of the Internet privacy debate

Little Bighorn, June 25, 1876 by Brendan January( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once known as "Custer's Last Stand," the battle of Little Bighorn was the last triumph of the Plains Indians over Federal troops. Yet, the story of the battle is not simply one of Native Americans triumphing over Federal forces. Rather it is a gripping and poignant story of how the winners-the Native Americans in this case-became the ultimate losers of everything they held dear as a result of an overwhelming and unanticipated victory that served only to accelerate the use of military force against them. Little Bighorn presents a balanced view of the battle and its context in a clear, informative and engaging way. It does this not only by covering the battle's background, course and aftermath, but also by setting the scene, describing the way of life of the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians, the movement of white settlers West, and how their actions and attitudes quickly began to erode the Indian way of life. The battle of Little Bighorn continues to fascinate people today, both because the battlefield itself continues to yield secrets and because it stands as a rare Native American victory in their struggle to preserve their way of life. Numerous illustrations, maps and relevant quotations enrich the substantial text of Little Bighorn. The book ends with a section on the battlefield today, which includes information on recent archaeological finds, along with a timeline, a glossary, and lists of books to read and places to visit.--
