The subject of this book is identity/difference politics, both in terms of how it is studied and how it shapes actual socio-political relations. I offer a theory and practice that is based on analyzing and critiquing how and with what. Identity/Difference Politics offers an alternative theoretical model to liberal multiculturalism, one that centres not on culture but on power.

Issues of power are examined through accounts of meaning-making – those processes through which meanings of difference are produced, organized, and regulated. Every identity, Connolly argues, whether individual or social, presents us with a fundamental and troubling paradox: an identity establishes itself in relation to a set of differences, and it operates under powerful pressures to fix, regulate, or exclude some of these differences as otherness.

This collection of essays points to ways in which notions of identity can inform changing conceptions of democratic politics.

It makes a powerful case that identity politics rather than economic distress was the driving force behind Trump’s victory, and in doing so offers deep insight into the current state of American politics. Identity politics, sometimes referred to as identitarianism, is a political approach and analysis based on people prioritizing the concerns most relevant to their particular racial, religious, ethnic, sexual, social, cultural or other identity, and forming exclusive political alliances with others of this group, instead of engaging in more traditional, broad-based party politics.

From identity crisis and identity politics to national identities, diaspora, and sexual identities, this new terminology of recent years has been the focus of key debates related to identity in cultural studies.

Identity and Difference examines the challenge of these debates and outlines their application to central questions of gender, sexuality, embodiment, health, race, and nationality. One of the distinctions I make in the book is between the ideas of identity and prejudice.
