Summary
Although there is scarcely more than a passing mention of homosexuality in Michel Foucault's scholarly writing, he became, after dying of AIDS in 1984, a powerful source of both personal and political inspiration to an entire generation of gay activists. At the same time, he acquired mainstream detractors who have systematically distorted and misrepresented this intellectual figure. This book is a defense of Foucault. Despite his statement that his work "had nothing to do with gay liberation," the book portrays him as a galvanizing thinker whose career as a theorist and activist will continue to serve as a model for other gay intellectuals
