In a world of increasingly heterogeneous societies, matters of identity politics and the links between collective identities and national, racial, or ethnic intolerance have assumed dramatic significance - and have stimulated an enormous body of research and literature which rarely transcends the limitations of a national perspective, however, and thus reproduces the limitations of its own topic. Comparative attempts are rare, if not altogether absent. Identity and Intolerance attempts to shift the focus toward comparison in order to show how German and American societies have historically confronted matters of national, racial, and ethnic inclusion and exclusion. This perspective sheds light on the specific links between the cultural construction of nationhood and otherness, the political modes of integration and exclusion, and the social conditions of tolerance and intolerance. The contributors also attempt to integrate the approaches offered by the history of ideas and ideologies, social history, and discourse theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... it is a thought-provoking, accessible and well-written exercise.' Joseph M. Bradley, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies
"This volume, seeking to resolve the issue by theoretically informed discussion, opens with the provocative reflection that racial prejudice should be regarded as a feature of modernity. The revival of racism in Eastern Europe, and the cultural paradigm of nationalism serve as starting points for a volume which is diverse in terms of methodological approaches and issues. Certainly ambitious in scope and interesting..." Canadian Journal of History
