Publisher Description

In this brilliant work, the most influential philosopher since Sartre suggests that such vaunted reforms as the abolition of torture and the emergence of the modern penitentiary have merely shifted the focus of punishment from the prisoner's body to his soul.

A classic!

This seminal book (and its underlying methodology) is SO powerful. The single book I remember most from college. Read it and be dazzled by Foucault’s insights and his inversion of the old ”knowledge is power" truism.
