"Power," in note 4 to the Introduction (15), for instance, is indeed one of the hardest Foucauldian concepts to define (and to teach); Brannigan does a good job capsulizing it, and emphasizes that the "discussion of power will appear throughout this volume." If I may repeat myself, what piques me about NHCM--and about all primer books that try to capture big theoretical achievements for new readerships--is the lack of emphasis on the fact that such terms, Foucauldian exempla especially, are themselves figurally laden, thick, occulted; thus my preference for White over Brannigan.
