This is a book certainly worth reading for everyone interested in a more fundamental analysis of the right to data protection in the European Union (EU). It is impressive how Lynskey manages to present her analysis of the subject, which is widely acknowledged as complicated, in such an accessible manner. She is not afraid of addressing difficult questions which other data protection scholars may raise but ultimately leave unresolved, to be reflected upon later. Lynskey tackles, for example, the question of what harm can actually be caused by data processing and examines the relation between data protection and property rights. In addition, Lynskey provides us with her contribution to the ongoing debate on the difference between the right to privacy and data protection.
