Review quote

"Foucault's work . . . leaves no reader untouched or unchanged." --Edward Said "What shines through in these pieces . . . is [Foucault's] remarkable liveliness of response, the extravagance of his curiosity, the originality and assurance of his formulations. . . To read this book is to remember--as with the Kennedy assassination or the Challenger explosion--where you were when you heard it for the first time." --"Boston Book Review"
