Jasis Social scientists, historians, archivists, attorneys, and government officials can read this well written and reasoned volume with profit. CHOICE ...a first-rate job of discussing questions of privacy that often bedevil investigative journalists as they seek sensitive records. Investigative Reporters and Editors Journal ...the thorough text is well written, the treatment of historical and legal aspects is substantial, and the final recommendations are forthright. The Journal of Academic Librarianship ...enormously well researched... Archives and Manuscripts: Journal of the Australian Society of Archivists Although it is designed for archivists, and treats exclusively of archival issues, MacNeil's text warrants wider attention throughout the information profession as an outstanding example of a study that examines the basic work of a major component of that profession from the standpoint of the ethical standards that must be rigorously applied in developing, implementing, and enforcing policies and procedures. Journal of Information Ethics ...an important book which should be read by anyone with an interest in or responsibility for the access to or storage of personal information, and for students in the information field...very readable and well-documented...
