The New York Times reviews a new nonfiction book by Alan Rusbridger, the former editor-in-chief of the Guardian. His 20 years as chief of the British newspaper, from 1995 to 2015, "parallel a period of dramatic transformation in the newspaper industry, arguably the most dramatic since the invention of the printing press," the review states. That time period included 9/11, the rise of the internet and social media, and paywall wars, among others, but perhaps most relevant for the privacy profession was during the summer of 2013 when the Snowden leaks of U.S. national security surveillance activities shook the privacy world, eventually leading to the downfall of the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor framework.
