Colonel Keith Davenport (Gary Merrill) is more of a friend than a commander to his men, a US bomber crew stationed in wartime Britain. After a series of dangerous missions, the pilots are living on their nerves and when Davenport is replaced by the callous General Savage (Gregory Peck), the latter's attempts to whip the crew into shape result in a deluge of requests for transfers. However, young Lieutenent Bishop (Robert Patten) rallies his fellow pilots, and soon they and Savage begin to develop a mutual respect.

"This is a learned book without being ponderous; a book which explores most abstruse regions of philosophy and social theory while remaining legible and lucid thoughts; uncompromising in its determination to confront all the ecruciatingly complex issues of Foucault's legacy and its manifold reprecussions, without ever losing the reader's attention and facing the readers with an argument they can follow, assimilate and learn from "Zygmunt Bauman, Emeritus Professor in Sociology, Leeds University
This book places Foucault's methodologies against central currents in soical theory and philosophy to provide a guide to doing historical sociology and to chart an original position on the condition of social science today. It is addressed to those working at the cutting edge of social research and to those who wish to understand Foucault's legacy.

The Last Man Takes LSD - Foucault and the End of Revolution (Hardcover): Daniel Zamora, Mitchell Dean The Last Man Takes LSD - Foucault and the End of Revolution (Hardcover)
Daniel Zamora, Mitchell Dean
R504 R413 Discovery Miles 4 130 Save R91 (18%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In May 1975, Michel Foucault took LSD in the desert in southern California. He described it as the most important event of his life which would lead him to completely rework his History of Sexuality. His focus now would not be on power relations but on the experiments of subjectivity, and the care of the self. Through this lens he would reinterpret the social movements of May 68 and position himself politically in France in relation to the emergent ant-totalitarian and anti-welfare state currents. He would also come to appreciate the possibilities of autonomy offered by a new force on the French political scene that was neither of the Left nor the Right: neoliberalism.

State Phobia and Civil Society - The Political Legacy of Michel Foucault (Paperback): Mitchell Dean, Kaspar Villadsen State Phobia and Civil Society - The Political Legacy of Michel Foucault (Paperback)
Mitchell Dean, Kaspar Villadsen
R461 R430 Discovery Miles 4 300 Save R31 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

State Phobia and Civil Society draws extensively upon the work of Michel Foucault to argue for the necessity of the concept of the state in political and social analysis. In so doing, it takes on not only the dominant view in the human sciences that the concept of the state is outmoded, but also the large interpretative literature on Foucault, which claims that he displaces the state for a de-centered analytics of power. Understanding Foucault means understanding all his interlocutors-whether Marxists, Maoists, neoliberals, or social democrats. It requires turning to Foucault's colleagues, including Deleuze and Guattari, Francois Ewald, and Blandine Kreigel, in relation to whom he carved out a position. And it entails an examination of his legacy in Hardt and Negri, the theorists of Empire, or in Nikolas Rose, the influential English sociologist. Foucault's own view is highly ambiguous: he claims to be concerned with the exercise of political sovereignty, yet his work cannot make visible the concept of the state. Moving beyond Foucault, the authors outline new ways of conceiving the state's role in establishing social order and in mediating between an inequality-producing capitalist economy and the juridical equality and political rights of individuals. Arguing that states and their cooperation remain of vital importance to resolving contemporary crises, they demonstrate the interdependence of state and civil society and the necessity of social forms of governance.

Governing Societies: Political Perspectives on Domestic and International Rule (Paperback, Ed): Mitchell Dean Governing Societies: Political Perspectives on Domestic and International Rule (Paperback, Ed)
Mitchell Dean
R720 Discovery Miles 7 200 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

What structures of power are involved in governing societies and how are they connected? . How is the liberal idea of governing through freedom linked to the increasing control of marginalised populations? . Have we reached the end of history in which governing largely concerns self-governing individuals, networks and communities?. Should we dispense with the 'container view of society' and contemplate the 'death of the social'?. . Today, many people in academia, politics and business, question the idea of being able to govern society. The nation state and sovereign government are displaced by globalization and individualization.

. . Mitchell Dean focuses on governing societies as a distinctive project that continues to define political life today. The book offers a critical analysis of contemporary liberal approaches to governing societies both in domestic and international affairs.

. . "Governing Societies" provides an overview of current perspectives and theories and examines recent transformations in techniques and rationalities of rule. It presents a new argument for the importance and transformation of sovereignty and powers of life and death and how they are integral to governing liberal-democratic societies.

. . The book is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of sociology and politics, as well as researchers and academics.
