On Identity

Stan Grant
Bestselling author Stan Grant explores how identity is being hijacked to incite hate.
Stan Grant asks why when it comes to identity he is asked to choose between black and white. Is identity a myth? A constructed story we tell ourselves? Tribalism, nationalism and sectarianism are dividing the world into us and them. Communities are a tinderbox of anger and resentment. He passionately hopes we are not hard wired for hate. Grant argues that it is time to leave identity behind and to embrace cosmopolitanism. On Identity is a meditation on hope and community.

Grant openly wrestles with aspects of his identity; both how he is known and understood in contemporary Australian society and what this identity might mean for him personally as both descendant and progenitor of ‘‘mixed’’ families.”
Sarah Maddison, The Saturday Age

Stan Grant has a bone to pick with many commonly accepted ideas about identity. Lucky us. The books he’s read, the life he’s lived all feed his rigorous and generous argument”
