Grounds for Difference, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Offering fresh perspectives on perennial questions of ethnicity, race, nationalism, and religion, Rogers Brubaker makes manifest the forces that shape the politics of diversity and multiculturalism today.

In a lucid and wide-ranging analysis, he contends that three recent developments have altered the stakes and the contours of the politics of difference: the return of inequality as a central public concern, the return of biology as an asserted basis of racial and ethnic difference, and the return of religion as a key terrain of public contestation. "Grounds for Difference is a subtle, original, and comprehensive book.

All the hallmarks of Brubaker's earlier work, such as the conceptual clarity, the theoretical rigor--grounded in a well-researched and well-informed analysis--the crisp writing style, and the impeccable sociological reasoning are displayed here.

There is a wealth of original ideas developed in this book that requires much careful reading and unpacking."--Sinisa Malesevic, H-Net Reviews"This is an imposing collection that will be another milestone in the literature of ethnicity and nationalism."--Christian Joppke, University of Bern
