Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Summing Up: Essential.  Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers.”  (Choice, 1 November 2013)

“This Companion will be most useful for an intermediate or advanced student of Foucault. Both the 'chronology' and the bibliography of English works of Foucault are required for any serious study of his work. And the fact that most of the authors in this book have written books on different aspects of Foucault's work means that it can be taken as a proxy for a survey into the current reception of his thought in the Anglophone world.”  (Metapsychology, 23 July 2013)

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"An attractive, illuminating, and indeed indispensable volume for anyone interested in Foucault. The translation of Daniel Defert's chronology makes this a must-have for English-speaking readers of Foucault's work. In addition, the volume contains a series of incisive essays by established and younger scholars on all aspects of Foucault's thought."

—Hans Sluga, University of California, Berkeley
