Discursive Constructions of Identity in European Politics by Richard C. M. Mole


Discursive Constructions of Identity in European Politics by Richard C. M. Mole

This volume brings together specialists from a range of disciplines to discuss the discursive construction of ethnic, national and regional identities and analyse how specific identity discourses condition and constrain knowledge and action with regard to various socio-political issues in Europe.


'The volume provides important critical theoretical insights into the state of the art of the problematic identity concept in social sciences.'

'...the text as a whole is incisive, carefully argued, and informative.' - Jeff Noonan, The European Legacy'
