'[hooks] made a choice to write for the largest possible audience, to change the greatest number of lives.' - Times Higher Education SupplementSynopsis:
bell hooks, one of America's leading black intellectuals, is also one of our most clear-eyed and penetrating analysts of culture. Outlaw culture - the culture of the margin, of women, of the disenfranchised, of racial and other minorities - lies at the heart of bell hooks' America. Raising her powerful voice against racism and other forms of oppression in the United States, hooks unlocks the politics of representation and the meaning of that politics for and in our time. hooks writes on many of the most important aspects of contemporary culture, from date rape, censorship, and new ideas of race and beauty, to gangsta rap, the dilemmas of feminism, and the rise of black intellectuals. Using a mix of essays and sometimes highly personal dialogues, hooks takes on Spike Lee and Naomi Wolf, Malcolm X and Madonna, Camille Paglia, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ice Cube, and the films The Bodyguard and The Crying Game . She speaks movingly about male violence against women, about black self-hatred, and about the ways an oppressive society creates its outlaws.In each case, hooks affirms a vision of intellectual and political engagement, foreseeing the possibility of active, critical participation in movements for radical social change.
