Governmentality : Current Issues and Future Challenges Hardback
Edited by Ulrich Brockling, Susanne Krasmann, Thomas Lemke
Part of the Routledge Studies in Social and Political Thought series
Examining questions of statehood, biopolitics, sovereignty, neoliberal reason and the economy, Governmentality explores the advantages and limitations of adopting Michel Foucault's concept of governmentality as an analytical framework.
Contributors highlight the differences as well as possible convergences with alternative theoretical frameworks.
By assembling authors with a wide range of different disciplinary backgrounds, from philosophy, literature, political science, sociology to medical anthropology, the book offers a fresh perspective on studies of governmentality.
