No matter whether it is a discussion of nationhood, race, family, adolescence, or popular culture, identity is a mainstay in everyday conversations about who we say we are as individuals and citizens within a local or national community. The Encyclopedia of Identity presents a broad, comprehensive overview of the definitions, politics, manifestations, concepts, and ideas related to identity.

The Encyclopedia is designed for readers to grasp the nature and breadth of identity as a psychological, social, anthropological, and popular idea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"....Nearly 300 essays... provide scholarly yet clearly written overviews of the many aspects of identity from the many disciplines that treat it.... Bottom line This is a most worthwhile reference tool for many academic libraries, as well as for large public libraries. The electronic version, while more expensive, will provide a greater ease of searching and accessing individual terms within every article. Highly recommended." (starred review) -- Marcia Welsh * Library Journal *
"Each of the 300 entries is written by a scholar who provides a definition of the concept, an overview of the history and current thinking, criticisms of the concept, and a bibliography of further reading. A significant portion of the work covers identity issues related to race, class, gender, nationality, religion, and language.... Useful in any library supporting research in the fields of philosophy and psychology. Also available as an e-book."-Booklist -- David Tyckoson
"For libraries serving programs focused on issues of identity, this would be a useful acquisition. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." -- Choice Review * Choice Review *
