Stuart Elden’s article “Rethinking governmentality” came out earlier this year and I’m a little slow linking to it, but don’t miss it. It’s an introduction to a whole section of the same name in the journal Political Geography. The other papers included “From micro-powers to governmentality: Foucault’s work on statehood, state formation, statecraft and state power” by Bob Jessop, “Governing through contingency: The security of biopolitical governance” by Michael Dillon, and “Spaces of security: The example of the town. Lecture of 11th January 1978″ by Michel Foucault (from STP).
