Rhizome and geneology

Deleuze and Guatarri refer to the rhizome as being an "anti-geneology". I
can understand that application to the geneological tree, such as a family
tree, but would that therefore also extend to foucauldian geneology? If so,
is a criticism rooted in history and power relations possible in a
rhizomatic world?


"If at the base there has not been the work of thought...we know that
[reform] will be swamped, digested by modes of behavior and institutions
that will always be the same."
-Michel Foucault, _Liberation_ interview, May 1981
