Exposed by Bernard E. Harcourt Exposed, Hardback (November 2015)

Exploiting our boundless desire to access everything all the time, digital technology is breaking down whatever boundaries still exist between the state, the market, and the private realm. Bernard Harcourt offers a powerful critique of what he calls the expository society, revealing just how unfree we are becoming and how little we seem to care.

Wrong-doing, Truth-telling by Bernard E. Harcourt Wrong-doing, Truth-telling, Hardback (June 2014)

Three years before his death, Michel Foucault delivered a series of lectures at the Catholic University of Louvain. These lectures provide the missing link between Foucault's early work on madness, delinquency, and sexuality and his later explorations of subjectivity in Greek and Roman antiquity. This book presents these lectures.

Occupy by Bernard E. Harcourt Occupy, Paperback (May 2013)

Features three essays that engage the extraordinary Occupy movement that has swept across the world, examining everything from self-immolations in the Middle East to the G8 crackdown in Chicago to the many protest signs still visible worldwide.

Illusion of Free Markets by Bernard E. Harcourt Illusion of Free Markets, Paperback (November 2012)

It is widely believed that the free market is the best mechanism ever invented to efficiently allocate resources in society. This book argues that our faith in 'free markets' has severely distorted American politics and punishment practices.
