Summary This new series from Grey House offers indepth, single volumes that follow the debate, or path, to a decision on a controversial topic as it evolved throughout history. Each volume offers a wide range of opinion essays and editorials, speeches, and journal articles and expert analysis. This volume offers a sweeping overview of the shifting tensions and public opinions fueled by Americans' expectations of privacy vs. their collective desire for national security. ... Diving into how far the government has gone and "should" go in the name of national security, this volume analyzes primary and secondary source documents such as Supreme Court decisions, articles from respected periodicals, and legislation. Coverage includes domestic spying, Apple's refusal to help with "back door" access of the iPhone, and the differences between President Obama's and President Trump's surveillance states
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 669-681)
