The ensuing impact on the pre-existing facets of social identity and marginality and the processes of construction of new social identities therein are studied. This book delineates both the hope and despair as produced with the arrival of the knowledge society and identifies the scope and conditions of alternative choice and liberation for the people within the emerging socio-economic order of this society.
