Cultivating Political and Public Identity

Why plumage matters

First Edition

Rodney Barker

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Cleverly illustrates the paradoxical tension in the cultivation of identity between association with others and distinction from them
  • Examines the inherent stress between equality and inequality in public identity
  • Presents identity, its generation and defence and assertion, as central features not only of contemporary human life but of all human life
  • Explains why no aspect of identity, from language to architecture, from diet to clothing, can be dismissed as trivial or superficial
