In this classic account of madness, Michel Foucault shows once and for all why he is one of the most distinguished European philosophers since the end of World War II. His influence dominates contemporary thinking. Madness and Civilization is Foucault's first book, and his finest accomplishment.

His other books expand on themes established here: power and imprisonment are at the very heart of this study. Madness and Civilization will change the way in which you think about society. Evoking shock, pity and fascination, it might also make you question the way you think about yourself.

Industry Reviews

'Michel Foucault's Madness and Civilization has been, without a shadow of a doubt, the most original, influential, and controversial text in this field during the last forty years. It remains as challenging now as on first publication.' - Roy Porter
