From award-winning journalist and sociology professor Gary Younge, a nuanced analysis of identity politics and why they matter today.
We are more alike than we are unalike. But the way we are unalike matters. To be male in Saudi Arabia, Jewish in Israel or white in Europe confers certain powers and privileges that those with other identities do not have. In other words, identity can represent a material fact in itself.

As Gary Younge demonstrates in this classic book, now featuring a new introduction, how we define ourselves affects every part of our lives: from violence on the streets to international terrorism; from changes in our laws to whom we elect; from our personal safety to military occupations.

Moving between fascinating memoir and searing analysis, from beauty contests in Ireland to the personal views of Tiger Woods, from the authors own terrifying student days in Paris to how race and gender affect ones voting choices, Gary Younge makes surprising and enlightening connections and a devastating critique of the way our society really works.
