Lemke offers the most comprehensive and systematic account of
Michel Foucault's work on power and government from 1970 until his
death in 1984. He convincingly argues, using material that has only
partly been translated into English, that Foucault's concern with
ethics and forms of subjectivation is always already integrated
into his political concerns and his analytics of power. The book
also shows how the concept of government was taken up in different
lines of research in France before it gave rise to governmentality
studies in the Anglophone world. Critique of Political Reason:
Foucault's Analysis of Modern Governmentality provides a clear and
well-structured exposition that is theoretically challenging but
also accessible for a wider audience. Thus, the book can be read
both as an original examination of Foucault's concept of government
and as a general introduction to his genealogy of power.
