Group Identity, Agency & Collective Responsibility: A Select Bibliography

This is the first draft of a compilation of book titles (in English) useful for delineating the contours of group identity, agency and collective responsibility in its various dimensions: metaphysical (and/or ontological), epistemic, psychosocial, moral, and legal. The list endeavors to represent the crème de la crème of the (fairly recent) relevant literature, so it’s not intended to be comprehensive, let alone exhaustive. I welcome suggestions for additional titles.
