This collaborative publication entitled Identity? Theory, Politics, History is the first of three companion volumes emanating from the partnership between the French Institute (IFAS), the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD, formerly FGD) and the HSRC. The focus of Volume 1, based on the 1997 conference of the same name held in Pretoria, is almost exclusively on South Africa shortly after that country's transition to democracy.
