A book by the Washington Post's writer on American privacy issues, Robert O'Harrow Jr., which examines how current government security measures will seriously curtail our civil liberties and privacy, was bought by Free Press senior editor Elizabeth Stein. She took North American and first serial rights to No Place to Hide: Technology, Surveillance and America's War on Terror from agent Amy Rennert and plans to publish next year. O'Harrow will describe how the government, using advanced computer technology, is grabbing private marketing, medical, travel and other personal data on citizens as it steps up its fight against terrorism, and examines the impact of all this on traditional notions of civil liberties.
