    Description"Power," the third and final volume of The New Press's Essential Works of Foucault series, draws together Foucault's contributions to what he saw as the still-underdeveloped practice of political analysis. It covers the domains Foucault helped to make part of the core agenda of Western political culture--medicine, psychiatry, the penal system, sexuality--illuminating and expanding on the themes of "The Birth of the Clinic," "Discipline and Punish," and the first volume of "The History of Sexuality.""Power" includes previously unpublished lectures, later writings highlighting Foucault's revolutionary analysis of the politics of personal conduct and freedom, interviews, and letters that illuminate Foucault's own political activism.

    Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. He held a chair in the history of systems of thought at the College de France and lectured at universities throughout the world. 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." James D. Faubion is a professor of anthropology at Rice University. He is the author of "The Shadows and Lights of Waco "and "Modern Greek Lessons" and the editor of Michel Foucault's "Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology" and "Power," both available from The New Press.
    Review quote
    "A rare opportunity to see how a great and original mind produces its work as well as itself at the same time. . . . Leaves no reader untouched or unchanged." --Edward Said, "The New York Times Book Review" "Ignore those who dismiss [Foucault] without having bothered to read him: You must change your life." --"Talk"
