Privacy: Wiretapping and Electronic Eavesdropping

Nova Publishers, 2002 - 133 pages
In an age where electronic communications are changing in front of our eyes, the potential to do harm using mobile phones, satellite telephones and other means of communications rivals the good they do. On the other hand, law enforcement needs up-to-date tools (laws) to cope with the advances, the population must be protected from undue intrusions on their privacy. This book presents an overview of federal law governing wiretapping and electronic eavesdropping. It includes a selective bibliography fully indexed for easy access.
