Synopsis

In Controlling Knowledge, Lorna Stefanick offers a

provocative inquiry into the regulatory regime that governs freedom of

information and the protection of privacy (FOIP). The application of

FOIP laws requires a balancing act between two potentially competing

goals - the desire to provide citizens with access to the

information they need in order to hold others accountable and the

desire to safeguard an individual's right to privacy and protect

sensitive information from abuse. To illustrate the impact of FOIP,

Stefanick examines the secondary uses of medical data, looks at the

forms of surveillance that the digital age has enabled, and explores

the power and perils of Facebook and the Internet.





Intended to serve as a "citizen's guide," and

written in refreshingly down-to-earth language, Controlling

Knowledge is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand the

concepts and issues that drive FOIP legislation and how these laws are

shaping our individual rights as citizens of the information age.
