      1. This book considers the figure of the ‘foreigner’ in the formation of identity from a historical perspective, specifically related to the modern nation-state and citizenship. Here Kristeva proposes a redefinition of ‘national space’ and seeks to unveil deep rooted racism and class conflict which underpin the labels ‘foreigner’ or ‘stranger.’ Influential in the development of post-colonial discourse.
