"This collection provides both classic and creative new analyses of four kinds of social identity that have been the focus of so much recent scholarly research, intellectual debate, and social policy. The excellent selection of papers in each area reflects the valuable resources that these philosophers bring to the project. This first-rate anthology will be a gift not only for philosophers but also for teachers and scholars in many disciplines, and for policy analysts." Sandra Harding, University of California, Los Angeles

"A welcome addition...I highly recommend the volume." James Wong, Dialogue, Vol 40.
