Owning up : privacy, property, and belonging in U.S. women's life writing / Katherine Adams.

'Owning Up' argues that from its beginning the U.S. discourse on privacy has been couched in terms of violation and dispossession, so that even as 19th century Americans came to regard privacy as a natural right, they also understood it as under threat or erasure.
