Caldas-Coulthard & Iedema: Identity Trouble - Critical Discourse and Contested Identities

At last! A group of writers who are willing to take on the notion of identity and reveal how so many authors have not interrogated its basis in theory. Caldas-Coulthard & Iedema have gathered together some key perspectives on Identity that help to expose its fragile foundations. Highlights for me were Lemke and Skeggs who take nothing for granted. My only real complaint is that I think there were still a few 'filler' chapters by writers who are happy not to be troubled by, or to trouble, identity.
