Short blog post on Foucault: The Birth of Power

1509507256Over at the Polity Books blog I have a short piece on Foucault: The Birth of Power, which will be out in very early 2017.

In 1969 Foucault published The Archaeology of Knowledge, a theoretical and methodological treatise which summarised the work he had been doing throughout the 1960s. Six years later he published Discipline and Punish, a politically-charged work of history. This period saw a major development in his work, in which the vocabulary of power is elaborated and put to work in genealogies of health, madness and the disciplinary society. Foucault: The Birth of Power studies that pivotal period in Foucault’s career. [more here]
