Description

This study argues that an emerging politics of identity is gradually replacing the politics of interests that has traditionally dominated the political arena in advanced industrial societies. It updates the literature on new political cleavages with a perspective that emphasizes both national patriotism and sub-cultural defense, and backs up its analysis with a large body of evidence concerning ongoing political conflicts.
