: "New Formations" is a journal of cultural debate, history and theory. It brings new and challenging perspectives to bear on the categories that frame cultural analysis and political action. The journal has covered issues ranging from the seduction of perversity to questions of nationalism and post-colonialism. Contributors open up new zones of enquiry whilst drawing new charts of understanding to explain new formations in contemporary life. "New Formations" brings together in one volume both established and new writers from many walks of critical life. Past contributors have included: Parveen Adams, Homi Bhabha, Slavoj Zizek, Susan Buck-Morss, Gillian Rose, Jacqueline Rose, Zygmunt Bauman and Christopher Norris. Based on a conference held in 1994 to mark the 10th anniversary of Michel Foucault's death, the articles in this issue testify to the continuing impact of Foucault's ideas on contemporary theorizing. Foucault's biographers, James Miller and David Macey, each reflect on the legacy of Foucault's life and work, whilst theorists from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds use Foucauldian themes and images to explore current theoretical and political issues. Contributors include: David Macey, James Miller, Colin Gordon, John Rajchman, Coreen Massey, Robert Young and Kate Soper.
