Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics
One of the leading public intellectuals of her generation, bell hooks has authored over 20 books, including several classics in African-American and Women's Studies. 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. Yearning crosses disciplinary boundaries in major debates on cultural criticism and the politics of race and gender. Hooks warns us about the tendency of the discourse about difference to be removed from the struggle we must all wage against power.
