About this product
- DescriptionBuilding upon a theoretical framework of democratic exclusion as a tool of public policy, Rebecca Kook uses sources as diverse as postage stamps and public festivals to unravel the 'logic' of democratic identity. She makes the provocative argument that membership in democracies is inherently exclusionary, and that national exclusion is a tacit requirement for successfully democratic regimes. Moving from a discussion of the political and legal construction of national identity to the particular experiences of the African American mirity in the United States and the Palestinian mirity in Israel, Kook raises serious questions about the potential for real democracy in societies plagued by complex racial and ethnic divides and social, ecomic, and political inequality.
