Can a state empower its citizens by classifying them? Or do reservation policies reinforce the very categories they are meant to eradicate? Indian reservation policies on government jobs, legislative seats and university admissions for disadvantaged groups, like affirmative action policies elsewhere, are based on the premise that recognizing group distinctions in society is necessary to subvert these distinctions. Yet the official identification of eligible groups has unintended side-effects on identity politics. Bridging theories which emphasize the fluidity of identities and those which highlight the utility of group-based mobilizations and policies, this book exposes didactic enforcement of categorizations, while recognizing the social and political gains facilitated by group-based strategies.

This book presents a new approach to the study of comparative politics that builds on the assumption that political actors and institutions operate within constructed communities of meaning, which in turn interface with other such communities. Accordingly, a comparative study of polities or the relations between polities (foreign policies, international relations) must incorporate a recognition of actors' identies, cultures, and worldviews, and the role of norms, rules, and ideas. The essays in the first part of the book explore the theoretical bases of this approach. The second part presents four case studies--of modern states and indigenous peoples in the Americas; democratic development in Benin, West Africa; culture industries and identity in Canada, France, and the EU; and the reconstruction of postwar Germany.
