What forms us? Genes or culture? According to Thomas Hylland Eriksen; both. In this book he discusses the problems of identity in a time marked by both globalization and nationalism.
Among the many questions the book poses, are: What is the debate on arranged marriage, at its deepest, really about? Are there both a good and a bad form of nationalism? Why aren't television and the internet leading to the growth of a global feeling of identity? How come the right to an independent identity has become a contested value in the world?
