The geopolitics of the police: Foucault, disciplinary power and the tactics of the Los Angeles Police Department

Auteur :
HERBERT, S.

Description :
The insights of Foucault are used to analyze the Los Angeles Police Department as an agency of discipline. General formulations concerning disciplinary power are assessed. The ethnographic fieldwork reveals that the department does engage in a series of sophisticated practices to monitor and control the populace. The disciplinary network is much more restricted, complex and contradictory than a simplistic Foucauldian reading would suggest.
