Sovereign Self

Pitfalls of Identity Politics

«“In this profoundly compelling and exceptionally far-reaching book, Elisabeth Roudinesco ruthlessly exposes the benighted logic behind the emancipatory countenance of contemporary identity politics. Fierce, fearless, and forward-looking, she reclaims the legitimate right to an open debate in a world in which people’s desperate search for a redemptive identity has elicited new forms of intellectual, social, and ideological violence. I expect this book to create a storm, which will not only be perfect, but totally unavoidable and absolutely necessary.”
Dany Nobus, Professor of Psychoanalytic Psychology, Brunel University London

“Roudinesco’s book makes an important, timely, and courageous contribution to the vexed issue of identity politics. Debunking ideologies that take ‘his majesty the ego’ as a weapon, her book shows concretely how the truth of the political subject emerges where identity fails. This is the work of a true historian, while touching the nerve of crucial debates of our present times.”
Jean-Michel Rabaté, University of Pennsylvania and American Academy of Arts and Sciences

“We are blessed to have such a guide into the murkiest regions of high theory.”
