    Review quote
    ." . . fills an important niche in presenting a significant number of Foucault's writings that otherwise would remain unavailable to an English-language audience. . . . this work demonstrates acute insights that illuminate the so-called normal' world."-"American Journal of Art Therapy "These writings evince Foucault at his most lucid. Kritzman's introduction is most helpful."-"Religious Studies Review
