This collection brings together leading scholars to explore the 'doing' and 'making' of identities. Drawing on the highly innovative ESRC Identities and Social Action Programme, the chapters take core social actions - such as performing, excluding, mixing, bonding - and demonstrate how social practices and identities unfold together.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Theorizing Identities and Social Action is a landmark text for social scientists across a large transdisciplinary domain, from psychosocial studies to social theory. It explores the workings of identity in social life through an outstanding collection of empirical studies drawing on a range of theoretical positions and methodological approaches. Covering so many key topics, it confirms the UK Economic and Social Research Council Programme on Identities and Social Action as an intervention of the utmost importance in social science research.' - Professor Stephen Frosh, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK

'This book is the culmination of a unique and ground-breaking project. Diverse contributions from leading identity scholars across the social sciences provide stimulating and powerful analyses of issues at the heart of modern life. This important and timely book provides a comprehensive survey of current research and defines the agenda for the future. It is compelling reading - informative and provocative in the very best ways.' Professor Alex Haslam, University of Exeter, UK
