Description

Politics, Philosophy, Culture contains a rich selection of interviews and other writings by the late Michel Foucault. Drawing upon his revolutionary concept of power as well as his critique of the institutions that organize social life, Foucault discusses literature, music, and the power of art while also examining concrete issues such as the Left in contemporary France, the social security system, the penal system, homosexuality, madness, and the Iranian Revolution.

Reviews

". . . fills an important niche in presenting a significant number of Foucault's writings that otherwise would remain unavailable to an English-language audience. . . . this work demonstrates acute insights that illuminate the so-called `normal' world." -- American Journal of Art Therapy

"These writings evince Foucault at his most lucid. Kritzman's introduction is most helpful." -- Religious Studies Review
