With this book, Barry Hindess sets new parameters for any future discourses on power

With this book, Barry Hindess sets new parameters for any future discourses on power. He unravels the confusion of power as capacity and power as right which has dogged modern political theory from Hobbes and Locke onwards, and sets out clearly the presuppositions of contemporary theories of power. On this basis, he is able to locate Foucault squarely in the mainstream of modern political thought, and to demonstrate the radicality of his attempts to refocus the analysis of power onto the nature and forms of government.
