Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

About the Author

Known mainly as a feminist thinker, hooks addresses a broad range of issues related to gender, race, teaching, and media, always advancing the understanding that these topics must be conceived of as interconnected, not isolated strands.
