520    These ethnographic essays by scholars in anthropology, law,
       political science, folklore, public administration, 
       medicine, and linguistics show contemporary connections 
       between liberal democracy and ethnography. Each 
       perspective explores a modern democratic site--courts, 
       classrooms, legislatures, the media, academic professions,
       and bureaucratic routines. Together, they expose a 
       contradiction--that official constructions of identity 
       treat "differences" as both natural characteristics of 
       individuals and the collective basis of interest groups. 
       This contradiction hampers liberal states' efforts to 
       acknowledge and accommodate the cultural diversity of 
       citizens. They also show that official categories do not 
       monopolize the available terms of understanding and 
       identification, given the richness and flexibility of 
       people's self-identifications outside official spheres. 
       This recognition implies an ethnographic project at the 
       heart of democratic change. The book develops two national
       case studies, the United States and Spain. Both countries 
       have been invoked as models of multiculturalism, but their
       constitutional discourse and politics take very different 
       approaches to issues of identity. Similarly, ethnographic 
       disciplines have been involved in the officialization of 
       difference in both countries, in different ways. Taken 
       together, these differences and their common roots in the 
       twinned histories of modern liberal democracy and the 
       social sciences, provide ethnographic, reflexive, and 
       comparative themes as well as broader theoretical and 
       practical implications.
