Much of Michel Foucault's interdisciplinary work is particularly relevant to the problems confronting social workers. This is the first book to offer a reading of Foucault's work oriented toward these ends. More than a just simplistic "application" of theory, this book provides a pragmatically grounded point of entry from which to study the most important thinker of the twentieth century.

Adrienne S. Chambon is associate professor in the Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto. Allan Irving is professor at the Center for Social Work Education at Widener University and an associate professor at the Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto. The late Laura Epstein was professor emerita, School of Social Service Administration, University of Chicago.
