    This is a very interesting book to read in and of itself It is also a interesting book because it appears to capture, and even direct much of the discussion on identity from the early 90s and onward, much because of the influence of many of the contributors in the years following on from 91 when the conference was and 95 when the book was published.I am predominantly interested in Judith Butler for my research so I read her article with most care However, I must say that there are wuite a This is a very interesting book to read in and of itself It is also a interesting book because it appears to capture, and even direct much of the discussion on identity from the early 90s and onward, much because of the influence of many of the contributors in the years following on from 91 when the conference was and 95 when the book was published.I am predominantly interested in Judith Butler for my research so I read her article with most care However, I must say that there are wuite a few interesting papers in the book Cornel West s first paper has a very interesting focus on recognition I suspect that Butler must have become somewhat influenced by the emphasis on recognition in the conference and when reading the papers in the book It is of course impossible to know unless one asks her , but up until about 95 Butler writes very much about performativity and abject and leans very much towards an identity of difference She doesn t completely move away from that after 95, but there appears to be a shift of emphasis in that post 95 her books is much about interpellation as forming the subject and the desire for recognition becomes essential.This was my first encounter with Mouffe and Laclau They have some interesting chapters in the book on politics and identity and on universalism The latter is Laclau s subject And if I recall correctly he is not completely ready to take leave of a concept of universalism just yet Or maybe that was Stanley Aronowitz, or both I don t have the book next to me at the moment of writing.Anyway, this is pretty much a specialist book and I suppose not that many people will find it since it is about 20 years old now Having said that, the chapters are rather accessible and there are many contributors that still have great influence
