"No thinker of the last generation helped shape understandings ofthe world more powerfully than Foucault. This splendid andup-to-date anthology shows that his work, through its variousphases, retains its analytic power today." Simon During, University of Queensland "Now is an appropriate time to reassess Foucault's work, to reflectupon its significance, relevance, and impact. These wide-rangingand challenging essays by leading figures in the field demonstratethe extraordinary breadth and depth of Foucault scontribution to the social sciences and humanities." Barry Smart, University of Portsmouth " Foucault Now shows that 'Foucault then' is as relevanttoday as ever he was. The essays collected here traverse the fullrange of Foucault s work. In situating his concerns andmethods within the politics of his times, they also connect them tothe politics of the present with a compelling urgency. Foucault'soriginality still astonishes, and he remains simplyindispensable." Tony Bennett, University of Western Sydney
