Foucault continues on the theme of his 1978 course by focusing on the study of liberal and neo-liberal forms of government and concentrating in particular on two forms of neo-liberalism: German post-war liberalism and the liberalism of the Chicago School.

Die Geschlechterverhältnisse verändern sich heute in widersprüchlicher Weise. Zunehmender Gleichheit in Beruf und Beziehungen für manche Frauen stehen vertiefte intersektionale Ungleichheiten nach Klasse, Migration und Geschlecht gegenüber. Der Band untersucht diese Veränderungen in den Körpern, Emotionen und Subjektivitäten und er betrachtet die neoliberalen geschlechtlichen Neuformierungen von Staat und globaler Politik. Was bedeuten die Nutzung weiblicher ‚Potenziale’ in verschiedenen Klassen, die Flexibilisierung von Männlichkeiten oder die zunehmende Akzeptanz von Homosexualität und sexueller Vielfalt in staatlichen Politiken? Und inwiefern können leitende Theorieansätze diese Veränderungen erfassen? Wie muss man Geschlecht, Globalisierung oder Kapitalismus (neu) denken, um die Transformationen zu verstehen?

Die Vorlesungen, die Michel Foucault in den Jahren 1979 und 1980 am Collège de France gehalten hat, haben in seinem Werk eine Scharnierfunktion. Nach der Untersuchung der politischen Wahrheitsregime, die im Zentrum der großen Vorlesungen zur Gouvernementalität standen, treten hier nun die ethischen Wahrheitsregime, die Selbsttechnologien, ganz in den Fokus von Foucaults Forschungen. Ein Thema, das ihn bis zu seinem Tod beschäftigt hat. Wie kommt es, so Foucaults zentrale Frage, dass in der christlich-abendländischen Kultur von den Menschen nicht mehr nur Akte des Gehorsams und der Unterwerfung, sondern auch ”Akte der Wahrheit“, des Wahrsprechens über sich selbst, über ihre Fehler, Wünsche und den Zustand ihrer Seele, verlangt werden? Zur Beantwortung dieser Frage unterzieht Foucault zunächst Sophokles' König Ödipus einer neuen Lektüre, wendet sich aber dann dem Urchristentum und dessen Praktiken der Taufe, Gewissensprüfung und Buße zu. In diesen Ritualen wird eine pastorale Ökonomie sichtbar, die um das öffentliche Geständnis kreist. Im Gegensatz zu dieser Ethik der Reinigung war die antike, heidnische Moral noch durch eine ”Kunst der Existenz“ bestimmt, wie sich in einem abschließenden Vergleich zeigt. Mit Die Regierung der Lebenden liegen nun Foucaults erste Untersuchungen zu diesen Fragen der Ethik und Ästhetik der Existenz vor, die den fulminanten Auftakt zu seinem Spätwerk bilden.

Cultures are shaped by many institutions and agencies, including governments, corporations, education and the media. In recent years, research into these culture-shaping activities has been increasingly associated with the developing field of cultural policy studies. The Cultural Policy Review of Books offers a fascinating insight into the intellectual formation of many of the leading figures that have contributed to this field. Invited to write a short review essay on the book that had most influenced their thinking, 41 academics and researchers from around the world reveal what they consider to be essential reading. Including essays on Bourdieu, de Certeau, Foucault, Gramsci, Habermas, and Williams, as well as many lesser known writers, the collection throws new light on the intellectual underpinning of cultural policy studies. It will be of interest not only to researchers, students and teachers in this field, but to all those looking to understand the forces that shape the culture of modern societies.

Law, Rights and Power: Re-Reading Foucault is the first collection in English to fully address the relevance of Foucault’s thought for law. Michel Foucault is the best known and most cited of the late twentieth-century’s ‘theory’ academics. His work continues to animate a range of different critical work across intellectual disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences. There has, however, been relatively little examination of the legal implications and applications of Foucault’s work. This book fills that gap, providing an in-depth analysis of Foucault’s thought as it pertains to the crucial questions of law, government and rights. This collection engages with key legal themes as they emerge, both in Foucault’s work and in the contemporary scholarship that surrounds it. These include: the opposition between ‘law’ and ‘the juridical’; legal ways of organising and processing knowledge; sovereignty; punishment; bio-politics and governmentality; security; resistance; and, judgment. Including contributions from acknowledged experts on Foucault’s work, as well as pieces by younger scholars, Law, Rights and Power: Re-Reading Foucault will be of considerable interest across a range of disciplines, including law, sociology, criminology, international relations, political theory, and philosophy.

This edited volume seeks to provide guidance on how we can approach questions of governing and agency—particularly those who endeavour to embark on grounded empirical research— by rendering explicit some key challenges, tensions, dilemmas, and confluences that such endeavours elicit. Indeed, the contributions in this volume reflect the growing tendency in governmentality studies to shift focus to empirically grounded studies. The volume thus explicitly aims to move from theory to practice, and to step back from the more top-down governmentality studies approach to one that examines how one can/does study how relations of power affect lives, experience and agency. This book offers insight into the intricate relations between the workings of governing and (the possibility for) people’s agency on the one hand, and about the possible effects of our attempts to engage in such studies on the other. In numerous ways, and from different starting points, the contributions to this volume provide thoughtful insights into, and creative suggestions for, how to work with the methodological challenges of studying the agency of being governed. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of international relations, global governance and research methods.

This volume of essays examines the ways in which sports have become a means for the communication of social identity in the United States. The essays included here explore the question, How is identity engaged in the performance and spectatorship of sports? Defining sports as the whole range of mediated professional sports, and considering actual participation in sports, the chapters herein address a varied range of ways in which sports as a cultural entity becomes a site for the creation and management of symbolic components of identity. Originating in the New Agendas in Communication symposium sponsored by the University of Texas College of Communication, this volume provides contemporary explorations of sports and identity, highlighting the perspectives of up-and-coming scholars and researchers. It has much to offer readers in communication, sociology of sport, human kinetics, and related areas.

In the debate over U. S. immigration, all sides now support policy and practice that expand the parameters of enforcement. Philip Kretsedemas examines this development from several different perspectives, exploring recent trends in U.S. immigration policy, the rise in extralegal state power over the course of the twentieth century, and discourses on race, nation, and cultural difference that have influenced politics and academia. He also analyzes the recent expansion of local immigration law and explains how forms of extralegal discretionary authority have become more prevalent in federal immigration policy, making the dispersion of local immigration laws possible. While connecting such extralegal state powers to a free flow position on immigration, Kretsedemas also observes how these same discretionary powers have been used historically to control racial minority populations, particularly African Americans under Jim Crow. This kind of discretionary authority often appeals to "states rights" arguments, recently revived by immigration control advocates. Using these and other examples, Kretsedemas explains how both sides of the immigration debate have converged on the issue of enforcement and how, despite differing interests, each faction has shaped the commonsense assumptions defining the debate.

British State Romanticism contends that changing definitions of state power in the late Romantic period propelled authors to revisit the work of literature as well as the profession of authorship. Traditionally, critics have seen the Romantics as imaginative geniuses and viewed the supposedly less imaginative character of their late work as evidence of declining abilities. Frey argues, in contrast, that late Romanticism offers an alternative aesthetic model that adjusts authorship to work within an expanding and bureaucratizing state. She examines how Wordsworth, Coleridge, Austen, Scott, and De Quincey portray specific state and imperial agencies to debate what constituted government power, through what means government penetrated individual lives, and how non-governmental figures could assume government authority. Defining their work as part of an expanding state, these writers also reworked Romantic structures such as the imagination, organic form, and the literary sublime to operate through state agencies and to convey membership in a nation.
