Summary "... France has produced a number of influential thinkers in the fields of anthropology, Marxism, psychoanalysis, philosophy and history. Among them Michel Foucault is undoubtedly one of the most illustrious. His works do not fit easily into the traditional boundaries of disciplines, and his analyses leave many a conventional position (and just as many a soi-disant unconventional position) in the social and human sciences in considerable discomfort. The purpose of this book is to proved an exposition of his main works." -- dust jacket
