About the Author:

Sam Binkley is Associate Professor of Sociology at Emerson College. He is the author of Getting Loose: Lifestyle Consumption in the 1970s and the coeditor (with Jorge Capetillo-Ponce) of A Foucault for the 21st Century: Governmentality, Biopolitics, and Discipline in the New Millennium.

Review:

“...an insightful book ... a brilliant provocation to rethink the concepts of immanence, transcendence, and intensification that haunt the experience of life in late capitalist societies.” ― Capital and Class

“Binkley is not the first to suggest that the new happiness ethos dovetails neatly with neoliberalism ... What distinguishes Binkley’s analysis from the preceding commentary is his Foucauldian take on the issue ... What follows is a breakthrough in the use of Foucault’s later work to disclose the link between emotional self-regulation and neoliberalism.” ― Open Review of Educational Research

“This clearly written and carefully crafted work is ... key to highlighting the role of emotions, temporality and practices in neoliberal governance.” ― Social Semiotics
