The age of Attila : fifth-century Byzantium and the Barbarians by Colin D Gordon( Book )

48 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author intends in his book "to give the reader with little or no Greek a chance to see for himself how the writers nearest to the events described their age," the fifth century, and specifically the dealings of the West and East Roman courts with the barbarians. For this purpose, he has translated those fragments of Olympiodorus, Priscus, Malchus, Candidus, and John of Antioch which have an immediate bearing on political events, distributed them over six chapters, and connected them with brief introductions and comments. Notes contain cross references, references to other ancient and a few modern writings, and textual criticism. The so-called general reader is bound to get a one-sided picture of the fifth century, unless he fits the fragments into the one he has already drawn for himself from Gibbon, Bury, Seeck, or Stein. Used with caution, as a supplement to textbooks, the volume may fulfill its purpose

Power/knowledge : selected interviews and other writings, 1972-1977 by Michel Foucault( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Michel Foucault has become famous for a series of books that have permanently altered our understanding of many institutions of Western society. He analyzed mental institutions in the remarkable Madness and Civilization; hospitals in The Birth of the Clinic; prisons in Discipline and Punish; and schools and families in The History of Sexuality. But the general reader as well as the specialist is apt to miss the consistent purposes that lay behind these difficult individual studies, thus losing sight of the broad social vision and political aims that unified them. Now, in this superb set of essays and interviews, Foucault has provided a much-needed guide to Foucault. These pieces, ranging over the entire spectrum of his concerns, enabled Foucault, in his most intimate and accessible voice, to interpret the conclusions of his research in each area and to demonstrate the contribution of each to the magnificent - and terrifying - portrait of society that he was patiently compiling. For, as Foucault shows, what he was always describing was the nature of power in society; not the conventional treatment of power that concentrates on powerful individuals and repressive institutions, but the much more pervasive and insidious mechanisms by which power "reaches into the very grain of individuals, touches their bodies and inserts itself into their actions and attitudes, their discourses, learning processes and everyday lives" Foucault's investigations of prisons, schools, barracks, hospitals, factories, cities, lodgings, families, and other organized forms of social life are each a segment of one of the most astonishing intellectual enterprises of all time -- and, as this book proves, one which possesses profound implications for understanding the social control of our bodies and our minds." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/random046/79003308.html
