Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to the Washington Post, no one who cares about contemporary African-American cultures can ignore bell hooks' electrifying feminist explorations. Targeting cultural icons as diverse as Madonna and Spike Lee, Outlaw Culture presents a collection of essays that pulls no punches. As hooks herself notes, interrogations of popular culture can be a powerful site for intervention, challenge and change . And intervene, challenge and change is what hooks does best.

Synopsis:

bell hooks, one of America's leading black intellectuals, is 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 lives.

Using the mix of essays and highly personal dialogues for which she is well known, "Outlaw Culture" gives us hooks on Spike Lee and Naomi Wolf, Malcolm X and Madonna, Camille Paglia, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ice Cube, and such films as "The Bodyguard" and "The Crying Game."

Synopsis:

Controversial and polemical, this work targets cultural icons as diverse as Madonna and Spike Lee, and presents a collection of feminist explorations that pulls no punches.
