"This smart collection of important essays reminds us how profoundly identity questions infuse the politics of the everyday. An eminently useful reader!" John Kuo Wei Tchen, New York University, author of New York Before Chinatown: The Shaping of American Orientalism, 1776--1882 "A landmark reader in the borderlands of our 'post' and 'trans' existences. Identities demonstrates the historical centrality of identity to Western philosophy and explores the philosophical dimensions of our contemporary struggle with identity, politics, and culture. Alcoff and Mendietaa s selections provide a profound critique as well as a generative overview for anyone interested in difference, power, and construction of the individual and social self." Johnnella Butler, University of Washington, editor of Color--Line to Borderlands: The Matrix of American Ethnic Studies
