Description - Place and the Politics of Identity by Steve Pile

The new cultural politics employs a spatialized vocabulary, focusing on how identity is forged. The cultural politics of resistance, as exemplified by black politics, feminism and gay liberation, has not only decentred and descredited "enlightenment man" but has developed struggles to turn sites of oppression and discrimination into spaces of resistance. The naturalized power relations of the old polarities of white/black, male/female and heterosexual/homosexual can be deconstructed in order to explore theories of cultural difference and the everyday realities of political practice. Presenting a wide range of detailed case studies, the authors explore the interface of space, politics and identity. "Place and the Politics of Identity" brings together some of the most radical voices, both new and established, in geographical thought. It aims to serve as seminal reading for all concerned with the new spaces of resistance and the new politics of identity.
