Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
`The book is easy to use and its layout demonstrates some skill in constructing volumes that `work′ as study guides and reference tools. The merit of this book goes well beyond its suitability for course applications. Contemporary ideas on identity provide new meanings for an old concept′ - Multilingual and Multicultural
In recent years, identity and difference have been the focus of key debates in cultural studies. This broad-ranging book examines the challenge of these debates and outlines their applications to central questions of gender, sexuality, embodiment, health, `race′ and nation.
The text renders accessible some of the most exciting and controversial issues in recent cultural studies. It combines theoretical explanation with in-depth discussion of key areas of contested identities, together with activities and selected readings.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
