The final volume in the definitive collection of Foucault's articles, interviews, and seminars. Power, the final volume of Essential Works of Foucault, 1954-1984, draws together philosopher Michel Foucault's contributions to what he saw as the still-underdeveloped practice of political analysis. It covers the domains Foucault helped to make part of the core agenda of Western political culture--medicine, psychiatry, prisons, sexuality--illuminating and expanding on the themes of The Birth of the Clinic, Discipline and Punish, and the first volume of The History of Sexuality. Power includes important later writings, and it highlights Foucault's revolutionary analysis of the politics of personal conduct and freedom. It also documents Foucault's wide-ranging involvements, through lectures, articles, and interviews published throughout the world, many unavailable in English until now.
