Foucault and the Modern International. Silencies and legacies for the study of World Politics. Sous la direction de Philippe Bonditti, Didier Bigo et Frédéric Gros, New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2016 (376 p.)
This book addresses the possibilities of analyzing the modern international through the thought of Michel Foucault. The broad range of authors brought together in this volume question four of the most self-evident characteristics of our contemporary world-‘international’, ‘neoliberal’, ‘biopolitical’ and ‘global’- and thus fill significant gaps in both international and Foucault studies. The chapters discuss what a Foucauldian perspective does or does not offer for understanding international phenomena while also questioning many appropriations of Foucault’s work. This transdisciplinary volume will serve as a reference for both scholars and students of international relations, international political sociology, international political economy, political theory/philosophy and critical theory more generally.
