About the Author

Bell Hooks has published three books with Routledge: Teaching to Transgress, Reel to Reel, and Outlaw Culture. Her most recent publications are All About Love and her children's book Happy to Be Nappy.

Reviews

This incisive examination of class is rooted in cultural critic hooks 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.
