    of that bunch.  I'm just not sure I would describe him as "accessible" in the general sense.

    That said, I quite enjoyed The Birth of Biopolitics a couple of years ago.  The discussion of fascism was quite enlightening.

      It is directly related to Discpline and Punish and was a life-changing text for me.

        The only D&G I've read was A Thousand Plateaus. I found it a bit of a mixed bag, but I think that's probably a result of my own intellectual limitations. Certainly, the rhizome chapter, the war machine, the section on "microfascism" were all quite interesting. A lot of my understanding, though, has been shaped by the ways in which others have taken it up.
