'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' - www.theory.org.uk '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.

Born in London, Gavin was educated at Cambridge, Manchester and London Universities, and before moving to QUT, lectured for six years at Lancaster University. He is interested in using social theory to understand both the human sciences and culture, social studies of science and technology, more traditional political sociology/political science concepts such as globalization and liberalism and cosmopolitanism. "I try to relate my teaching to my research, inasmuch as I try to always discuss my thinking on the key questions that have stayed with me through all my years as an undergraduate, a postgraduate, and an academic - questions of power and government, of the role of law, and of the limits of sovereignty."
