What is an identity? What do identities do and why do we have them? Why do we identify with some people more strongly than with others? And what role do identities play in politics, in the exercise of political power? The book is devoted to looking at these and at related questions. It does so from a genuinely multi-disciplinary perspective, relying on the insights of various fields of study to illuminate one another. These include political science, sociology, anthropology and social psychology. Identity is a difficult area of analysis precisely because everyone is convinced that they know the answers, though often enough they cannot say why they know what they know. The book does not pretend to provide all the answers to the dilemmas that it explores, but it does offer a clear and cogent way of understanding them. The scope of the book is very audacious, in that it relates identity to power, to community and to globalisation; and at the same time, the argument fuses theory and case studies in a wholly successful fashion. Identity and nationhood are central concepts in the world and this book offers a unique way of approaching the role that identities play.
