'Metaphors of Identity' crosses and combines disciplines to examine the nature of; Fitzgerald, in deftly separating "identity" from "culture," clearly provides a reasoned and critical view of social, biological, and political factors which thwart understanding and cohesion among groups of people. This book should not be confined to the academic world, but should be enjoyed by literate humanists who find the canon of "political correctness" politically, intellectually, and spiritually pinching, but who despise bigotry in all its many forms.
