Despite profound disagreement on whether identities are essential or existential, primordial or constructed, singular or multiple, there is little dispute over whether identities exist or not. In this provocative study, Sinisa Malesevic interrogates the unproblematic use of concepts of identity, and in particular national or ethnic identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Sinisa Malesevic is one of the brightest and most provocative young scholars writing about identity today. Here he takes well-worn basic themes, such as ideology, that have been recently somewhat overlooked in this context and breathes fresh life into them. In the process, he revives contemporary sociological debates about ethnicity and nationalism. Written with passion and commitment, this is a 'must read'' - Richard Jenkins, University of Sheffield, UK

'...thought-provoking and eminently readable work...I found this to be both a provactive and engaging piece of work which illustrates the problems of treating social groups as 'categories of social analysis'...' - Michael Skey, Nations and Nationalism

'...this is a thoroughly recommendable book that will interest social theorists as well as students and scholars of fields such as nationalism, ethnicity, genocide, and indeed, racism...' - Peter Martin, Ethnic and Racial Studies
