I read 'Surveiller et punir', about the history of punishment and the prison system. Very interesting indeed, although not easy to read. He's the kind of guy who writes sentences you have to read more than once sometimes to get the point.
I didn't read his work about the history of madness, but I like the way he treats the subject, sanity being just the majority's madness, the madness of the powerful.
BTW, did you know he was introduced to LSD toward the end of his life, and that this experience completely changed his whole outlook on things? It seems it influenced his late work quite a bit, although I don't remember the details.
