This book has been re-titled Modern Privacy & Surveillance Law. Formerly titled Privacy and the USA PATRIOT Act, the law analyzed by this treatise has evolved beyond any one statute. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, aspects of constitutional, international, national security, military, criminal, immigration, civil rights, privacy, customs, commodities, securities, financial, transportation, business, employment, contracts, health, education, agriculture, administrative, procedural, property, tort, and other areas of law have blended into a new, challenging, ever-changing, and bleak American jurisprudence: The law of surveillance.

This is a rapidly developing area, and this treatise will help practitioners, legislators, administrators, scholars, journalists, businesspersons, students, and others to understand the structure, implications, strengths, weaknesses, and uses of American surveillance law.
