Foucault and the Government of DisabilityShelley Tremain, Editor 2015
"[A]n important, prescient, and necessary contribution...a kind of litmus test for the efficacy of Foucault's concepts in the study of disability, concepts that lead to a refusal of the biological essentialism implied in the disability/impairment binary."
"Tremain has done an exceptional job at organizing and procuring important, rigorously argued, and entertaining essays.... This book should be a mandatory read for anyone interested in contemporary philosophical debates surrounding the experience of disability."
—Essays in Philosophy
"A beautiful exploration of how Foucault's analytics of power and genealogies of discursive knowledges can open up new avenues for thinking critically about phenomena that many of us take to be inevitable and thus new ways of resisting and possibly at times redirecting the forces that shape our lives. Every scholar, every person with an interest in Foucault or in political theory generally, needs to read this book."
