He offers both a clear account of what is at stake in these debates and a sharp critical sense of how they could develop. 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. In a brief concluding chapter, Hindess sums up both the strengths and limits of Foucault's challenge to political theory, and points to the fictions of political community as constraints upon political thought which remain to be critically examined.
A model of clear and effective writing, this book should be read by all students of political and social thought. Undetected location. NO YES. Discourses of Power: From Hobbes to Foucault.

Table of contents Acknowledgements. Reviews "The combination of impeccable scholarship and original insight makes this book indispensable to all who wish to explore the complex field of modern power.
Through bold and invigorating investigations of the central texts of modern political thought, Barry Hindess uncovers their conceptual anatomy and reveals the pervasive implications of flawed understandings of power from Locke to contemporary liberalism and critical theory.
Through a lucid exploration of the arguments of Michel Foucault, Hindess poses us urgent and challenging questions about how one might think beyond these limited visions of political sovereignty and political community.
