Traces of the Art of Governing People
In his new book Gute Hirten führen sanft, Ulrich Bröckling assembles theoretically as well as empirically oriented essays. The collected works firstly point out the premises of a research program inspired by the work of Michel Foucault; secondly, they exemplify this agenda through several individual studies treating empirical subjects; finally, they offer insights into the relationship of critique, counter-action, and sociology. The recurring theme of these essays is the rise of a subtle, consensus-oriented form of government and the effects of domination it bears.
