At the 2003 qRock the Voteq debate, one of the questions posed by a student to the eight Democratic candidates for the presidential nomination was qhave you ever used marijuana?q Amazingly, all but one of the candidates voluntarily answered the question. Add to this example the multiple ways in which we now see public intrusion into private lives (security cameras, electronic access to personal data, scanning and qwandingq at the airport) or private self-exposure in public forums (cell phones, web cams, confessional talk shows, voyeuristic qrealityq TV). That matters so private could be treated as legitimate-in some cases even vital-for public discourse indicates how intertwined the realms of private and public have become in our era. Reverse examples exist as well. Around the world, public authorities look the other way while individual rights are abused--calling it a private matter--or officials appeal to sectarian morAcs to justify discrimination in public policies. The authors of The Private, the Public, and the Published feel that scholarship needs to explore and understand this phenomenon, and needs to address it in the college classroom. There are consequences of conflating public and private, they argue--consequences that have implications especially for what is known as the public good. The changing distinctions between qprivateq and qpublic, q and the various practices of private and public expression, are explored in these essays with an eye toward what they teach us about those consequences and implications.As most readers will know, Amazon.com invites site visitors to review products sold there, not only books, videos, and ... that compels them formally to log in to Amazon. coma#39;s site; one does not review without providing credit card information , anbsp;...
