English term or phrase: where is the predicate?
Thus the gradual deemphasis in Foucault’ work of specific social techniques of domination and discipline, and a generalizing of the history of sexuality into a “genealogy of the subject in Western societies.”

Is the structure of this sentense proper?
discourse
Chinese translation:省略句
Explanation:
句子是正确的。 谓语被省略了。

=Thus CAME the gradual deemphasis in Foucault鈥?work of specific social techniques of domination and discipline, and a generalizing of the history of sexuality into a 鈥済enealogy of the subject in Western societies.鈥?br />

Thus, hence, etc, are often followed by a sentence without a predicate.
