Castile adds to the Object Lessons series on the intrigue of everyday objects by addressing the driver’s license. The pocket-sized book jumps right into the relatively recent transformation of an automotive safety document of limited importance into the all-powerful photo ID it is today, gatekeeper of all age- and identity-related privileges. The culture of fake IDs is explored across the dimensions of both chronology (with the ease of doctoring diminishing over time) and demographic (from underage drinkers to would-be terrorists), followed by an exploration of the license’s graphic and functional design, and its variations across the globe. After surveying the cultural meaning of the driver’s license to teenagers, the book spends a chapter discussing philosophical aspects of identity and how they are manifested through the license photo, physical description categories, and expiration date. The final chapter presents several emerging issues of civic importance as voter ID laws and RFID become topics of contention.
