Synopsis: In the Middle Ages there were gaols and dungeons, but punishment was for the most part a spectacle. The economic changes and growing popular dissent of the 18th century made necessary a more systematic control over the individual members of society, and this in effect meant a change from punishment, which chastised the body, to reform, which touched the soul. Foucault shows the development of the Western system of prisons, police organizations, administrative and legal hierarchies for social control - and the growth of disciplinary society as a whole. He also reveals that between school, factories, barracks and hospitals all share a common organization, in which it is possible to control the use of an individual's time and space hour by hour.

About the Author: One of the leading intellectuals of the twentieth century and the most prominent thinker in post-war France, Foucault's work influenced disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, philosophy, sociology and literary criticism.

Book Description Pantheon Books, 1977. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: VG+. 1st Edition. Very nice, square copy in untorn, unclipped dj. Ownership signature of legendary playwright and AIDS activist Larry Kramer. Kramer and Foucault took radically different positions during the AIDS crisis. Foucault never publicly admitted he was suffering from the disease, while Kramer did as much as any other human being to raise awareness of it and combat it. I would therefore call this a Disassociation copy. Bookseller Inventory # 047031
