Description
 

Marking a major development in Foucaults thinking, this book takes as its starting point the notion of biopower, studying the foundations of this new technology of power over populations. Distrinct from punitive disciplinary systems, the mechanisms of power are here finely entwined with the technologies of security.nbsp;In this volume, though, Foucault begins to turn his attention to the history of governmentality,nbsp;from the first centuries of the Christian era to the emergence of the modern nation state--shifting the center of gravity of the lectures from the question of biopower to that of government. In light of Foucaults later work, these lectures illustrate a radical turning point at which the transition to the problematic of the government of self and others would begin. nbsp
