(p.3) 1 Introduction
The Political Psychology of Globalization

Chapter 1 introduces the central argument of the book by addressing a critically important matter that has so far been only gestured toward in the vast literature on globalization: the political psychological experience of living in a rapidly changing world. The chapter is centrally concerned with how narratives and discourses affect notions of self and others and how they construct and influence identity constructions among both majority and minority communities. More specifically, the chapter explores the ways in which political identities are actively struggled over, constructed by, and disseminated among both majority and minority group members in the context of a range of political projects. The focus is on diasporic and “postdiasporic” (second- and subsequent generations) Muslims living in the West and the various identity strategies available to them in a world characterized by global change and discourses on terror. The chapter also provides an overview of the book.
