This work addresses one of the least studied yet most pervasive aspects of modern life - the techniques and mechanisms by which official agencies certify individual identity. From passports and identity cards to labour registration and alien documentation, from fingerprinting to much-debated contemporary issues such as DNA-typing, body surveillance, and the catastrophic results of colonial-era identity documentation in postcolonial Rwanda, the book offers a comprehensive historical overview of this topic.
