    Review quote
    Praise for "Lectures at the College de France, 1978-1979" "[Foucault] has an alert and sensitive mind that can ignore the familiar surfaces of established intellectual codes and ask new questions...[He] gives dramatic quality to the movement of culture."--"The New York Review of Books""" "Foucault is quite central to our sense of where we are..."--"The Nation" "These lectures offer important insights into the evolution of the primary focus of Foucault's later work - the relationship between power and knowledge."--"Library Journal" "Ideas spark off nearly every page...The words may have been spoken in [the 1970s] but they seem as alive and relevant as if they had been written yesterday."--"Bookforum"
