American Book Review theme on Critical Lives – including piece by me on Foucault

A theme section of American Book Reviewpdfimage.png has just been published. Edited by Robert T. Tally Jr., it includes reviews of a number of recent biographies of social theorists and philosophers – Freud, the Frankfurt School, Habermas, Schmitt, Deleuze, Barthes, Hall and others.

I have a piece in there entitled ‘Do we need a new biography of Michel Foucault?‘ which is in place of a review, since there have been no new biographies since Eribon, Macey and Miller in the 1990s. I reflect on those biographies, and the later editions of Eribon’s biography, in the light of the research I’ve done for my Foucault books and newly available materials.

The issue is subscription only, but I’m happy to share my piece.
