Bibliography...................................................................................20 1. Introduction Possession: A Romance, first published in 1990 marked a turning point in A.S.Byatt’s career, with its ability to not only attract a small specialized audience but crossing over and lodging in the popular imagination. Although the author had been writing for almost three decades and her highly literary and intelligent style was well... 2. Theoretical background 2.1. Concepts of Identity “[...] who am I?”( Possession, p.251) are the pondering thoughts of the academic Maud Bailey, the main female Protagonists-maybe the most common question that arises when oneself is reflecting about himself. At the same time this question implies a longing for identity, which is the key theme of the novel discussed in this paper. Possession can be read as a double quest for identity since the protagonists’ search for their biographical subjects, the Victorian poets H.R. Ash and C. LaMotte, is closely connected to their own search for themselves. However the term identity is a concept which offers various interpretations so that it firstly will be defined by reference to different point of views: the autonomous self by definition of René Decartes, the Freudian approach, developed further by Jacques Lacan and the deconstructionist view of Jacques Derrida.

Mark Hosack

The corporate greed of Wall Street meets the Hitchcockian suspense of North by Northwest in this thrilling debut by screenwriter Mark Hosack (The Good Spy Dies Twice). One day Paul Majors is a respectable businessman looking into some accounting irregularities in his office’s parent company. The next he’s wading through a murky world of dark finance, uncovering a vast web of illegal activities in the CEO’s executive circle, being hunted by a ruthless corporate assassin and the FBI, and getting sucked into a second company’s illicit dealings. As he travels across the United States to unravel the twin mysteries he’s caught in, it’s not clear who Paul can trust—or even who is who. The woman who seduced him at the hotel bar might be there to help, or take him out. The government agents change with a chameleon’s ease. Heck, even Paul’s running around under an assumed name! In this corporate shell game of names and motivations, Paul’s got 1,500 loyal employees—and his own life—on the line. But it’s becoming dangerously clear that Paul himself is not Too Big to Fail…or to be killed.

Steph Lawler

Questions about who we are, who we can be, and who is like and unlike us underpin a vast range of contemporary social issues. What makes our families so important to us? What do the often stark differences between how we self-identify and the way others see and define us reveal about our social world? Why do we attach such significance to 'being ourselves'? In this new edition of her popular and inviting introduction, Steph Lawler examines a range of important debates about identity. Taking a sociological perspective, she shows how identity is produced and embedded in social relationships, and worked out in the practice of people's everyday lives. She challenges the perception of identity as belonging within the person, arguing instead that it is produced and negotiated between persons. Chapter-by-chapter her book explores topics such as the relationships between lives and life-stories, the continuing significance of kinship in the face of social change, and how taste works to define identity. In particular, the updated edition has a new chapter on identity politics, as well as carefully compiled guides for further reading that reflect the broad importance and impact of these ideas, and the fact that, without understanding identity, we can't adequately begin to understand the social world. This book is essential reading for upper-level courses across the social sciences that focus on the compelling issues surrounding identity.

Milan Kundera

There are situations in which we fail for a moment to recognize the person we are with, in which the identity of the other is erased while we simultaneously doubt our own. This also happens with couples--indeed, above all with couples, because lovers fear more than anything else "losing sight" of the loved one. With stunning artfulness in expanding and playing variations on the meaningful moment, Milan Kundera has made this situation--and the vague sense of panic it inspires--the very fabric of his new novel. Here brevity goes hand in hand with intensity, and a moment of bewilderment marks the start of a labyrinthine journey during which the reader repeatedly crosses the border between the real and the unreal, between what occurs in the world outside and what the mind creates in its solitude. Of all contemporary writers, only Kundera can transform such a hidden and disconcerting perception into the material for a novel, one of his finest, most painful, and most enlightening. Which, surprisingly, turns out to be a love story.

In Nazi concentration camps, the will of Jewish prisoners was broken by stripping away their personal identification and giving them just a number rather than a name. Satan operates the same way, always trying to undo the faith of believers by twisting the reality of who they are as followers of Christ. Identity by young pastor Eric Geiger (coauthor of the multi-awarded national bestseller Simple Church) helps Christians clearly understand who they really are as defined by various Scriptures and unpacks the practical response that goes along with each wonderfully dramatic, empowering, and liberating truth. Readers will consider like never before the Bible's descriptions of God followers as priests, brides, servants, friends, aliens, and ambassadors. Both challenged and encouraged, they will discover their deepest self and greatest purpose in Identity.

“Thoft’s gripping sequel...A quirky and empathetic heroine, a fast-moving plot, and a surprise ending make this a winner.” —Publishers Weekly Firecracker P.I. Fina Ludlow returns in the next hard-driving entry in the acclaimed series by Ingrid Thoft. It’s been a couple months since Fina’s last big case—the one that exposed dark family secrets and called Fina’s family loyalty into question—but there’s no rest for the weary, especially when your boss is Carl Ludlow. Renata Sanchez, a single mother by choice, wants to learn the identity of her daughter Rosie’s sperm donor. A confidentiality agreement and Rosie’s reticence might deter other mothers, but not Renata, nor Carl, who’s convinced that lawsuits involving cryobanks and sperm donors will be “the next big thing.” Fina uncovers the donor’s identity, but the solution to that mystery is just the beginning: within hours of the case going public, Rosie’s donor turns up dead. Fina didn’t sign on for a murder investigation, but she can’t walk away from a death she may have set in motion. She digs deeper and discovers that DNA doesn’t tell the whole story and sometimes, cracking that code can have deadly consequences.

Brian Michael Goss,Christopher Chávez

Identity: Beyond Tradition and McWorld Neoliberalism refashions the frameworks of discussion of “who we are”. In the “Introduction”, co-editors Brian Michael Goss and Christopher Chávez’s grand tour re-works previous concepts of identity in prelude to the volume’s global reach. The first section examines the intersection of identity and mass media; to wit, non-ascriptive ideological interpolation in a right-wing British broadsheet, the rise of beur cinema as an organically European movement, and linguistic construction of foreigners in a Thai novel. The second section examines the nation and trans-nation. The discussion traverses the “Global Latino” in advertising discourse, the (practical, theoretical) conundrums inscribed in the European Union, retorts to the global construction of Italianicity, implications of Spain’s World Cup triumph in 2010 for the nation’s unity, and the activism of expatriate Iranian bloggers. The third section of the book addresses social approaches to identity. Matchmakers who coach Israeli daters and a linguistic analysis of female teen conflict on Facebook conclude the trajectory through global sites at which identity is animated in practice, within a volume of scholarly originality grounded in the present moment.

Larry D Rosen

Rond 2015 zal ongeveer 80 procent van de wereld bevolking een smartphone, een tablet-pc of een laptop hebben. Meer dan een op de twee inwoners van West-Europa en Noord-Amerika maakt er nu al dagelijks gebruik van. Dat wil zeggen dat zij vierentwintig uur per dag online zijn. Dr. Larry D. Rosen argumenteert dat de overvloed aan informatie waar wij mee worden geconfronteerd niet gezond is voor ons geestelijk welzijn. Zo vertoont het gedrag van smartphonejunks en patiënten met een obsessief-compulsieve stoornis veel gelijkenissen. Tieners posten hun doen en laten op Facebook, veertigers speuren het internet af op zoek naar tekst en uitleg over huidvlekken, ook al kregen ze van hun arts te horen dat ze zich geen zorgen hoeven te maken. Het zijn maar enkele voorbeelden. Gelukkig hoeft technologie ons leven niet te bepalen. In zijn boek drukt Larry D. Rosen ons met de neus op de feiten, maar tegelijkertijd laat hij ons zien hoe we weer een evenwicht kunnen bereiken tussen het gebruik van digitale media en menswaardig gedrag. Dr. Larry D. Rosen is professor Psychologie aan de California State University. Als internationaal erkend expert in technologische psychologie bestudeert hij al 25 jaar het gebruik van nieuwe media bij kinderen, studenten en volwassenen. Hij is auteur van verschillende boeken en schrijft columns in The National Psychologist.
