The New Press has published his books "Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology"; "Ethics"; "Power"; "The Essential Foucault"; and "The Chomsky-Foucault Debate" (with Noam Chomsky). Foucault's other books include "Madness and Civilization," "Discipline and Punish," "The Order of Things," and "The History of Sexuality." Paul Rabinow is a professor of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley. His previous books include "Anthropos Today," "French DNA" and "French Modern."
    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"
