Review:

'Michel Foucault's Madness and Civilization has been, without a shadow of a doubt, the most original, influential, and controversial text in this field during the last forty years. It remains as challenging now as on first publication.' - Roy Porter

From the Back Cover:

'Michel Foucault's 'Madness and Civilization' has been, without a shadow of a doubt, the most original, influential, and controversial text in this field during the last forty years. It remains as challenging now as on first publication. Its insights have still not been fully appreciated and absorbed.' - Roy Porter

The influence of Michel Foucault dominates contemporary thinking. In this remarkable work, he shows us why. 'Madness and Civilization' was Foucault's first book, and is arguably his finest accomplishment. Subsequent works expand on key themes established here: power, knowledge and confinement are at the very heart of this study. 'Madness and Civilization' will change the way you think about society. Evoking shock, pity and fascination, it might also make you question the way you think about yourself.

Michel Foucault (1926-1984). Celebrated French thinker and activist who challenged people's assumptions about care of the mentally ill, gay rights, prisons, the police and welfare.
