A pile of recently bought, earned or complimentary books: Foucault’s The Punitive Society, Wendy Brown’s Undoing the Demos, Ben Golder’s Foucault and the Politics of Rights, four books in recompense for review work for Ashgate, and recent issues of Theory, Culture & Society and Transactions of the IBG.
The three books at the top are resources for the Foucault work – a copy of the 1973 re-edition of a sexual education manual Apprenons faire l’amour, an issue of La nef, and Serge Livrozet’s De la prison à la révolte. Foucault wrote the preface for the last, co-authored a piece in the second with the Groupe Information Santé, and wrote a short piece defending a doctor, Jean Carpentier, who had been prosecuted for distributing the original version of the first. The first and third of these texts are reprinted in Dits et écrits (texts 116 and 110), but the second was not (see here). I will say a bit about the these texts in chapters five and six of Foucault: The Birth of Power.
