This book tackles fundamental questions about the nature of personal, political, and national identities and their linkage to big events_revolutions, social movements, democratization, and other processes of political and social change. Tilly focuses on the role of stories, as means of creating personal identity, but also as explanations, true or false, of political tensions and realities. He writes with the immediacy of a journalist, but the profound insight of a great theorist.
