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.
“…Regardless of what views you now hold, you’ll probably find in the rich empirical work that follows much with which to agree, some points with which to disagree, and arguments that you’ll want to consider at more length before you decide…What more could you ask for in a timely book on a topic whose importance grows more obvious with each new general election?" -Professor Brian Gaines, University of Illinois
