Review quote

'Thought-provoking account.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Lois McNay has produced an attractively clear and critical account of how feminists might use Foucault's last works.' Sociology 'It offers a clearly written and thorough, critical survey of Foucault's last publications. This, in turn, is balanced by a wide-ranging and equally critically review of recent developments within contemporary feminist ethical theory. It is well worth the read!!' Women's Philosophy Review 'This is an excellent book, lucid, carefully argued, sympathetically critical and a great pleasure to read.' Jeffrey Weeks, South Bank University 'Thought-provoking account.'
