"Identity Theory encourages not only more systematic research, but also a continuing discussion among theorists and practitioners about the meaning and measure of identity theory." --Contemporary Sociology "As a macrosociologist of culture and politics, I learned much from Identity Theory. The book is a must-read for scholars of all disciplines who want to work with the concept of identity." --Mabel Berezin, Associate Professor of Sociology, Cornell University
