>>7582081 I'd say start with the collection of lectures he gave at the University of Paris. As they are transcripts of lectures they are generally meant to be for wider audiences so they aren't as dense as some of his written works. I'd suggest: The Birth of Biopolitics, Security, Territory, Population and Society Must be Defended, all of which cover concepts such as power/knowledge, Biopolitics, etc and attempts to further them into a more unified conceptual structure.
>>7582105 ...although the first one I read was actually Archeology of Knowledge, which was actually a surprisingly good introduction despite being very abstract. Actually the abstractness probably helped- I tried The Order of Things and gave up because he was constantly referring to people and ideas without explaining them- felt like it needed fairly specialist knowledge of that period of French intellectual history.
