In this wide-ranging book, Paul Hoggett argues that human feelings and identities are constitutive of both personal and political life. Engaging with major debates in political theory, sociology, and psychoanalysis, he brings fresh insights to a range of issues: dynamics of political protest, intractable conflicts, fundamentalism and populism, the new political charismatics, the nature of forgiveness, and the relationship between anxiety and governance. The book is conceptually innovative and accessible, carefully introducing different theories of collective emotion and group identity and making extensive use of case studies from the U.S., England, and across the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This beautiful book does it all. It pulls together all the diverse literatures on politics and emotions; it reviews what we have learned; and it lays out a number of paths for future work. It is also full of colorful examples to delight and educate any reader. This book is a culmination of Hoggett's many years as an activist and an academic, which clearly taught him a lot."

-- James M. Jasper, Graduate Center of the City University of New York

"Paul Hoggett once again breaks new intellectual ground with POLITICS, IDENTITY AND EMOTION, a book that is impressive, insightful and erudite in scope and subject matter. Hoggett puts politics and psychoanalysis into a reflective configuration to get at the core of our emotional lives: each page reveals the multifaceted psychology of the actors and subjects of contemporary political relations. The book presents an invaluable, and indeed unique, contribution to the understanding of emotions in wider social contexts."

-- Professor Anthony Elliot, Chair of Sociology, Flinders University Australia and Visiting Research Professor, Open University, UK
