Discipline and Punish
by Michel Foucault
Paperback. 352 Pages. ISBN: 9780394739540.
One of Foucault's influential works, Discipline and Punish catalogs French disciplinary thought relevant in discussions of liberal democratic government. Discipline and Punish influenced an entire generation of sociological thought as the ways in which discipline and punishment techniques, or perhaps, surveillance, functions to make individuals a reflection of the techniques used to punish.
In this brilliant work, the most influential philosopher since Sartre suggests that such vaunted reforms as the abolition of torture and the emergence of the modern penitentiary have merely shifted the focus of punishment from the prisoner’s body to his soul.
