about

Foucault, the Family and Politics presents a rich account of the politics and power relations that organize family and intimate life, advancing with and beyond Foucault's classic and more recently-published writings. The obligation to attend school, to go to work, to stay healthy, to follow the law – 'being a good son, a good husband, and so on' as Foucault wryly remarks – are frequently organized through the family.


Including contributions from a range of well-known scholars and an essay by Foucault himself, translated here in English for the first time, this volume is of interest to scholars in sociology, politics, history, philosophy, gender theory, literary criticism and cultural studies.
