Abstract

If only the task of writing a popular introduction to Foucault were as simple as it is thankless. I know this, having tried it once and vowed never again (McHoul, A. and W. Grace. 1993. A Foucault Primer: Discourse, Power and the Subject. Melbourne: Melbourne University Press). The present offering makes the job easier by eschewing close attention to Foucault’s actual writings and supplementing its paraphrases thereof with anecdotes about 1990s popular cultural and political phenomena, persons and events.
