    One thought on “Reassessing Foucault: Power, Medicine and the Body”

    1. An interesting collection of essays examining Foucault's work, mainly Discipline and Punish and Birth of the Clinic. Some of the included essays were a little more repetitive than others (for example, many of them open with a discussion of Foucault's controversial reputation among historians, which covers very little new ground each time). I particularly enjoyed Nikolas Rose's "Medicine, History and the Present" and Sarah Nettleton's "Inventing Mouths: Disciplinary Power and Dentistry".
