'A spectacular collection of essays by the most noted theorists of identity. The book well frames the issues around identity that presently are defining living in the early 21st century … A must read' - Patricia Ticineto Clough, CUNY
'A wonderfully disparate and impressively distinguished set of authors to address the question of identity. The result is exciting and fruitful. No other book connects so elegantly sociological notions of individualization with the psychoanalysis of melancholy' - Scott Lash, Goldsmiths, University of London
'A series of cutting-edge papers on the new individualism … an excellent collection that I would recommend to anybody who wants to understand the state of individuality today' - Mark Featherstone, Keele University
This is a useful text which may benefit student learning in a variety of contexts. For this reason I will be adopting the text as supplemental to dedicated module texts throughout the course.
