This wide-ranging book draws on literature, law, and psychoanalysis to examine important aspects of the emergence of identity as a peculiarly modern preoccupation.In particular, the book addresses the social, legal, and personal anxieties provoked by the rise of individualism and selfhood in modern culture.
