Though Foucault is now widely taught in universities, his writings are notoriously difficult. Reassessing Foucault critically examines the implications of his work for students and researchers in a wide range of areas in the social and human sciences.

Focusing on the social history of medicine, successive chapters deal with his historiographical, methodological and philosophical writings, his ideas about prisons, hospitals, madness and disease, and his thinking about the body.

The book also suggests ways in which Foucault's influence will continue to dominate cultural history and the social sciences.

About the Editors:

Colin Jone sis Professor of History at the University of Warwick.

Roy Porter is Professor of Social History of Medicine a the Wellcome Institute in London.
