Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment
Identity and the End of History
After a late-summer hiatus, The American Interest Podcast is back to discuss one of this fall’s must-read books: Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment by our own Executive Committee Chairman, Francis Fukuyama.
In the age of Brexit and Donald Trump, “identity politics” are said to be all around us, driving everything from the populist resurgence in the West to the increasing radicalism on college campuses to contemporary Islamism. But where did the modern notion of identity politics come from—and how can nations address particular demands for recognition without eroding a common sense of belonging?
Join Francis Fukuyama and Richard Aldous as they discuss these questions and many more. And don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, where you can leave a review, and follow @aminterest and @FukuyamaFrancis on Twitter.
