summary
This collection of essays points to ways in which notions of identity can inform changing conceptions of democratic politics. Categories of identity - gender, race, class and sexuality - are re-examined to allow a move away from a fixed moralistic approach to identity politics, towards a recognition of difference, autonomy and interdependence. Contributors include Homi Bhabha, Stuart Hall, Kobena Mercer, Pratibha Parmar, Jonathan Rutherford, Andrea Stuart, Simon Watney and Jeffrey Weeks.
