Michel Foucault – References and Works

It’s officially 24 years since the death of great French social critic, Michel Foucault (yea yea, my favorite). Anyway, the following is a list of Foucault books and resources that I have been able to locate on the internet and referencing here for educational, non-commercial purposes.

While he died in 1984 of HIV (yes, he was gay), his contributions to our ‘disciplines’ are numerous. His lecture series from the College of France is also quite insightful. I am waiting for a good deal on the latest one “Security, Territory and Population.”
