MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Michel Foucault:

"[Foucault] must be reckoned with by humanists, social scientists, and political activists." - The New York Times Book Review

"Foucault is quite central to our sense of where we are...[His work carries] out, in the noblest way, the promiscuous aim of true culture." - The Nation
