About the Book

What happens when the largest majority of the population blindly follow the interests of the tiny minority and lead a so called revolution against their current regime? What happens to a country, where all its sanctity and sacredness are destroyed by the hands of its own children? If Orwell’s Mr. Jones is removed from the authority, the emerge of the pigs is an inevitable likelihood. This book compares the pre and after revolution state, of countries where uprisings emerged and reaches the vehement conclusion about the pros and cons of these rebellions in the shadow of Michel Foucault’s understandings of power and his ideas of governmentality.

About the Author

The author is interested in showing the other sides of power. Power to him is not merely a source of punishment and dominance, it is rather an essential source for arranging the society and a crucial base for disciplining one’s self on one hand and the populations on the other.
