This collection of essays engages two of the most fundamental social and political issues of our time: community and identity. Wrestling with the perplexities of these two issues within the Africana world, the contributors delve into the influences of a postmodern world of globalization with outdated, crumbling forms of identity and sociality. In the wake of such an order, new forms of identity and community must be established. Birt has collected an informed group of contributors here, who lay the foundation for a new approach to finding community and identity in the Africana world.

About the Author:

Robert E. Birt is assistant professor of philosophy at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland.

Review:

The Quest for Community and Identity is a testimony to the vibrancy of Africana philosophy and the seriousness of the philosophical issues that Africana philosophy raises. (Robert Bernasconi, Pennsylvania State University)

Recommended for mid- to upper-level courses on African American social and political thought. (CHOICE)

A significant contribution to social and political philosophy, critical race theory, and African American or Africana Philosophy. . . . The Quest for Community and Identity is an important resource for a number of disciplines and interdisciplinary endeavors. (Lucius T. Outlaw, Vanderbilt University)
