An original, comprehensive interpretation of Michel Foucault's analysis of biopolitics - situating biopolitics in the context of embodied histories of subjectivity, affective investments and structures of experience. Going beyond lamentation at the horrors of biopolitical domination, the book develops a positive-critique of biopolitical experience.
CLAIRE BLENCOWE is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick, UK. She has previously lectured in social, cultural and political theory at Newcastle and at Bristol.
