Reviews

It's the mark of a good book that distance enhances value. This appraisal of the role which the human sciences have played in the production of selves at once governable and self-governing still bites. Rose shows how political technologies reappear as canons of personal ethics, and thus points to self transforming properties in our practices of understanding and intervention at the very junctures where we take "ourselves" most seriously. A brilliant intervention itself. It is great stuff. Professor Marilyn Strathern, Department of Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge
