About this book

Contemporary bureaucracy is a set of norms, rules, procedures, and formalities which includes administration, business, and NGOs. Where Max Weber meets Michel Foucault, Béatrice Hibou analyzes the political dynamics underlying this process. Neoliberal bureaucracy is a vector of discipline and control, producing social and political indifference.

About the authors

Béatrice Hibou is director of research of the CNRS at CERI-SciencesPo, Paris, France. Her comparative research in political economy focuses, from a Weberian perspective and a foucaldian conception of power, on the political significance of economic reform, on state trajectories and on the exercise of domination, based on cases from sub-Saharan Africa, the Maghreb and Europe. Her most important publications include Anatomie Politique de la Domination (2011), The Force of Obedience, Political Economy of Repression in Tunisia (2011); ed. Privatising the State (2004).
