Reviews

"Identification practices, though ancient in origin, are increasingly significant for daily life and consequential, for good or ill, for individuals and groups. This impressive collection glows with brilliant insights on how and why they have developed as they have, in different countries and cultures. Fascinating, illuminating and sometimes scary."

David Lyon, Queen's Research Chair in Surveillance Studies, Department of Sociology, Queen's University, Canada.

"This fine collection constitutes a major contribution to our growing understanding of the importance of identification practices in the modern world. It broadens the lens in both geographical and temporal terms. The volume thus extends the range of our appreciation of these practices and invites further research on under-studied areas and periods. The book represents a decisive advance in the frontier of identification studies."

John Torpey, The Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA.
