An outstandingly good introduction to Foucault's work: lucid, measured, well organised, and covering this complex and in many ways heterogeneous body of work with remarkable thoroughness and ease.
A great recommendation for understanding.
This book is a great introductory text to students and those new to Foucault. Where it importantly differs from other introductory texts is that it draws from (and provides references to) a different set of sources - a series of lectures that Foucault gave from 1973-83. It thus enriches the concepts such as power/knowledge, governmentality and discipline.
A good book for the more able students to use.
This is a clear and understandable book, starting with a very helpful glossary of theoretical terms.
This book provides an accessible introduction to Foucault's major work exploring power and control, governmentality and , ethics which are crucial for students to understand.
A good book that will relate the topic to the sociological concepts that Foucault puts forward.
An excellent and useful text which I have recommended for my second and third years.
This is a good starting point for students who may want to use the ideas of Foucault in their research work. It is well written and easily accessible breaking down the component philosophical constructs that can be difficult to understand. It can offer students the basic knowledge that they can build on.
A good primer for introducing studnets to key aspects of Foucault's corpus of conecpts
Cause has taken a slightly different slant although i might use sections of the book.
A very good and readable text for both tutors and undergraduates alike. Suitable for 3rd level and post graduated too. It has linked Foucault well into contemporary examples and analysis. Will be used in new academic year.

At last a book that can help students in trying to understand Foucault and providing a great introduction to this well known philosopher.
A very good accompaniment to any student thinking seriously about following the work of Foucault. Very clear and concise in the manner it is structured the book offers a very clear understanding of Foucaults rather complex at times thinking. Easy to follow, very well structured, a really good text for any Sociology undergraduate. I will be recommending primarily for this level of reader
