Abstract Demand for recognition of one's identity is a master concept that unifies much of what is going on in world politics today. Fukuyama offers a provocative examination of modern identity politics: its origins, its effects, and what it means for domestic and international affairs of state. He shows that we must begin to shape identity in a way that supports rather than undermines democracy. Unless we forge a universal understanding of human dignity, we will doom ourselves to continuing conflict. -- adapted from jacket
