Summing Up: Essential. Upper-divisionundergraduates through researchers/faculty; generalreaders. (Choice, 1 November 2013) This Companion will be most useful for an intermediate oradvanced student of Foucault. Both the 'chronology' and thebibliography of English works of Foucault are required for anyserious study of his work. And the fact that most of the authors inthis book have written books on different aspects of Foucault'swork means that it can be taken as a proxy for a survey into thecurrent reception of his thought in the Anglophoneworld. (Metapsychology, 23 July 2013)
