About this book

This collected volume draws together essays written by International Relations scholars from a variety of regional, methodological and theoretical perspectives to confront the challenges of identity-centered analysis. In particular, the contributors seek to elucidate the general meaning and methodological implications of the commonly state yet largely unexamined, assertion that identities are relational, fluid, constructed, and multiple.

Reviews

"an unpacking of the term identity packed with illustrations from tango to transnationalization. a welcome addition to IR's identity debates in the classroom and beyond." - Professor Cynthia Weber, Lancaster University, UK

"This timely book is a major event in scholarship in identity theory and global politics. Goff and Dunn have assembled an outstanding ensemble of established leading scholars of identity theory as well as a number of highly promising junior scholars. Their collected essays offer the reader essential theoretical insights in addition to wide-ranging original empirical research that will illuminate scholars interested in international relations theory, comparative politics and area studies as well as anyone interested in the salience of shifting social identities in a globalizing world."- Dr. Rodney Bruce Hall, Academic Director, Oxford University Foreign Service Programme & University Lecturer in International Political Economy
