"Many of the chapters have been revised and updated to incorporate, and respond to, new theoretical, social and political developments in the field; a new introduction surveying the state of governmentality today has also been added as well as a completely new chapter on international governmentality and a postscript on the crisis of neo-liberalism today."--Jacket." ;
