Bill Maurer, University of California,Irvine
"This is one of the best collections of its kind. Written byleading anthropologists, this volume takes up Foucault'schallenge to modern knowledge and significantly expands thediscourse on our current cultural and epistemologicalpredicament."
John Gledhill, University of Manchester
"Ranging across colonialism, globalization, technoscience,biosociality, and necropolitics, each gem in this superblyintegrated collection demonstrates how anthropologists inspired byFoucault's ideas about modern government can transcend hisEurocentrism while building on his original provocations."
