Identities, Inclusion, Exclusion and America



The central interest of this book lies in the questions of what is the nature of the American identity that is projected into the global arena? How is this distinctive identity constructed? What implications arise from this identity and process of construction for patterns of inclusion and exclusion in American society and for America’s relations with the wider world?
