Summary "This book surveys a variety of issues relating to culture, identity and representation from an interdisciplinary perspective, with contributions from sociology, economics, history, politics, international relations, security studies, museum studies, translations studies and literary and cultural studies. Each brings a different perspective to bear on questions of culture and identity in the contemporary period and how these relate to the politics of representation."--Jacket
