In einem Dorf an der kolumbianischen Karibikküste feiert Bayardo San Roman seine Hochzeit. Ein prunkvolles Fest wird gefeiert, und dass die Braut den Bräutigam nicht liebt, scheint ein unwesentliches Detail, denn „Liebe erlernt sich“. Doch auf das Fest folgt der Skandal. Angela Vicario, die schöne Braut, wird noch in der Nacht von ihrem Ehemann ins Elternhaus zurückgebracht; sie war nicht mehr unberührt. Angela offenbart den Namen des angeblichen Täters, und mit Fleischermessern bewaffnet ziehen ihre Zwillingsbrüder los, um die Tat zu sühnen, das heißt, den Verführer zu töten. Das ganze Dorf erfährt von ihrer bitteren Pflicht. Jeder weiß, dass hier Vorurteile eine sinnlose Tat auslösen, doch niemand schreitet ein. Jahre später befragt der Ich-Erzähler alle Zeugen und rekonstruiert den Ablauf des tragischen Geschehens, die wenigen Stunden von der Ankündigung bis zur Ausführung des grausamen Verbrechens.

Der Begriff der Regierung, den Foucault vor allem in den weitgehend unveroffentlichten Vorlesungen der Jahre 1978 und 1979 am College de France entwickelt hat, liefert den Schlussel zum Verstandnis seines Spatwerks. NIcht mehr Recht und Krieg, sondern Fuhrung und Hegemonie bilden die zentralen Bezugspunkte. FOucault vertritt die These, daSS die "Genealogie des modernen Staates" und die "Genealogie des modernen Subjekts" zusammengehoren. FOucaults Analyse der modernen Gouvernementmentalitat darf gerade heute Aktualitat beanspruchen. ANhand des liberalen Denkens zeigt er, wie die Selbstregulationsfahigkeit von Individuen und Gruppen mit okonomischer Profitmaximierung und gesellschaftspolitischen Zielen verknupft werden. DAmit kann er die Beziehungen zwischen "Bio-Politik" und Rassismus, Freiheit und Sicherheit, dem Abbau sozialstaatlicher Leistungen und dem zunehmenden Appell an "Eigenverantwortung" und "Selbstsorge" aufzeigen. Der Neoliberalismus ist demnach eine Rationalitat, die nicht nur eine neue Form des Sozialen "erfindet", sondern auch eine neue Subjektivitat. IN ihr sind wirtschaftlicher Wohlstand und personliches Wohlsein miteinander gekoppelt, wobei nicht nur der individuelle Korper, sondern auch der Staat als politischer Korper "schlank" und "fit" sein muSS. THomas Lemkes Studie, die auf umfangreichen Recherchen und bislang unbekanntem Archivmaterial basiert, betritt Neuland in der Foucault-Rezeption. DAruber hinaus enthalt sie die umfassendste Bibliographie der politisch und sozialwissenschaftlich relevanten Arbeiten Foucaults und eine Vielzahl von deutschen Erstubersetzungen seiner Texte. SIe zeigt aber auch, wie von SchulerInnen und KollegInnen Foucaults die "Regierungs"-.PErspektive aufgenommen wurde und sich in Forschungsarbeiten konkretisieren. SIe bietet nicht nur eine Interpretation, sondern wird selbst zum Werkzeug fur eine Kritik der politischen Vernunft.
