The keyword for this chapter is identity, meaning the qualities that determine who we are and what makes us distinctive. The chapter begins with a discussion of the meaning of identity generally, and of the particular place of national identity in global studies. It then looks in turn at culture, race, ethnicity, and religion, beginning with a discussion of the difficulties in defining most of these terms before moving on to a discussion of the different contexts within which they are used. In each case, it reviews the impact of these concepts on global consciousness and global issues.
