We can call this underside ‘‘necropolitics’’ (or perhaps hygienic governmentality). Foucault, of course, famously defined biopower as ‘‘what brought life and its mechanisms into the realm of explicit calculations’’ (1980: 143). Thus defined, scholars have generally interpreted this technology of power as simply a life-affirming power – one aimed at investing life and making it grow. However, Foucault also noted that there was another side to biopower. It is often the case, he suggested, that ‘‘entire populations are mobilized for the purpose of wholesale slaughter in the name of life necessity’’ (1980: 137).
