Reviews

"A rare opportunity to see how a great and original mind produces its work as well as itself at the same time ... Foucault's work ... leaves no reader untouched or unchanged."
--Edward Said, The New York Times Book Review

"What shines through in these pieces is [Foucault's] remarkable liveliness of response, the extravagance of his curiosity, the originality and assurance of his formulations."
--Geoffrey Galt Harpham, The Boston Book Review
