Abstract

A lacuna in literature which concerns data privacy from an international perspective would, put plainly, make any decent contribution to the law library welcome. At times fierce national and strong institutional stances on data protection matters have led to an increased risk of fragmented jurisprudence. Culture and history in this field are so often at play in the relevant tribunals and international courts: consider, for example, the recent ‘right to be forgotten’ ruling from the Court of Justice of the European Union and the Google response. Any attempt at a global analysis is therefore a complicated venture. Bygrave’s publication, however, offers more than a mere rhetorical contribution to an increasingly complex legal field; it is, perhaps, the most comprehensive book published on international data privacy law since Kuner’s Transborder Data Flows and Data Privacy Law (Oxford: OUP, 2013). Liddle provides a comprehensive review of Bygrave's work in this instance.
