    The book "Safeguards in a world of ambient intelligence" is unique in its kind. It discusses social, economic, legal, technological and ethical issues related to identity, privacy and security in Ambient Intelligence (AmI). It introduces AmI and, subsequently, makes it vivid by describing four scenarios. Threats and vulnerabilities as well as safeguards are identified, which stress the already common aspects of current IT and AmI. The book is a little EU-biased but is otherwise well balanced and excellently structured.
