Using Foucault's Methods by Gavin Kendall

Book Description

'As a companion to Foucault's original texts, carefully showing what he's done and why - and how that could be applied elsewhere - it's outstanding' - 'Very much a 'hands-on' tool kit of a book, scholarly but accessible...a very useful textbook which approaches its subject in an original way' - Sociological Research Online 'At last, a student-friendly guide that answers the question: "Yes, but how do you do Foucault?" Kendall and Wickham address the thorny question of how-to-Foucault in a clear, distinctive manner that stands out in the secondary literature on this important thinker' - Toby Miller, New York University This book provides a clear, straightforward guide to those who want to apply the work of Foucault to their own field of interest. The authors employ an accessible style to encourage readers to engage with Foucault's work by tackling the issues that students most often raise. The book is organized around the following themes: history, archaeology, genealogy and discourse as the cornerstones of Foucault's methods; and science and culture as important objects of analysis for those using Foucault's methods.The book enables the reader to understand how Foucault's contribution to social thought can be applied and opens up possibilities for researchers to use Foucault rather than merely discuss him.

Sociology of Cosmopolitanism by Gavin Kendall Sociology of Cosmopolitanism, Hardback (April 2009)

The dream of a cosmopolitical utopia has been around for thousands of years. Yet the promise of being locally situated while globally connected and mobile has never seemed more possible than today. Through a classical sociological approach, this book analyses the political, technological and cultural systems underlying cosmopolitanism.

State, Democracy and Globalization by Gavin Kendall State, Democracy and Globalization, Hardback (November 2003)

An integrated account of the state in the contemporary world, this text provides an accessible but informed introduction for students. It covers the rise of the state and argues that its power and influence are in decline in the face of globalization and new forms of governance in the 21st century.
