THE POLITICS OF SELFHOOD: Bodies and Identities in Global Capitalism
Richard Harvey Brown, editor
University of Minnesota Press | 288 pages | 2003
ISBN 0-8166-3754-7 | hardcover | $54.95
ISBN 0-8166-3755-5 | paperback | $19.95
Public Worlds Series, volume 13

Three broad themes run through the collection: how the body is constructed in various ways for different purposes, how the electronic media and its uses shape selves and sensualities and contribute to civic discourse, and how global capitalism acts as a direct force in these processes. By taking a distinctly cross-cultural and comparative approach, this volume explores more fully than ever the political, economic, institutional, and cultural settings of corporeality, identity, and representation.

Contributors: Antonella Fabri, Eva Illouz, Philip W. Jenks, Lauren Langman, Timothy W. Luke, Timothy McGettigan, Margaret J. Tally.
