Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Bookseller ReviewsBell hooks likes to quote her Kentucky mother's adage, "Life is not promised," a statement that seems to anticipate the urgency of her own work. Hook's perceptive and increasingly sensitive studies of cultural nuance continues in this collection of essays.
Library Journal
This incisive examination of class is rooted in cultural critic hooks's (All About Love) personal experience, political commitment, and social theory, which links gender, race, and class. Starting with her working-class childhood, the author illustrates how everyday interactions reproduce class hierarchy while simultaneously denying its existence. Because she sustains an unflinching gaze on both her own personal motivations and on persistent social structures, hooks provides a valuable framework for discussing such difficult and unexplored areas as greed, the quest to live simply, the ruling-class co-optation of youth through popular culture, and real estate speculation as an instrument of racism. Although the reading level and the price are both steep, this title is highly recommended for most public libraries and academic social science collections.--Paula R. Dempsey, DePaul Univ. Lib., Chicago Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
