Praise for the book: "This latest collection from hooks contains a dozen recent essays on the representation of the African American experience, an area in which, she argues convincingly, little progress has been made... Imbued with hooks's theoretical rigor, intellectual integrity, breadth of knowledge and passion, this book is a necessary read for anyone concerned with race in America." -Publishers Weekly (1999) "hooks's essays raise many of the most significant debates within black cultural life of recent times, such as relations between the sexes and the dangers of racial essentialism inherent in all forms of black nationalism... She casts a fresh perspective on aspects of black women's writing and black feminist theorising..." -Sally Keenan, Journal of American Studies (1995) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
I probably should mention that I am a white male, sociologist, husband of an African American women, and father of a biracial newborn. I mention this up front because I don't think this book was written with me in mind. I enjoyed it, however, despite disagreeing with many of hooks points and finding her style lacking in balance and civility.
In this book of short essays, hooks appears to gives voice to the suppressed frustrations of many externally "successful" women of color. Therefore, the book may be cathartic for women of color sharing her passionate disappointment in our Eurocentric society, with "White" femininism, and with Black men. With essays entitled "Hot Black Pussy" and "Eating the Other," it should be fairly obvious that this is not the book for someone looking for balanced analysis. Nevertheless, hooks makes many important theoretical contributions regarding femininism and Black liberation.
I confess that when I bought this book in 1995, I found it unbearably dogmatic and even hateful. (I even felt a bit sorry for hooks, who I percieved at the time as deeply traumatized by racism.) My perspective has changed over the years, and I recently reread parts of it and found many of hook's points insightful. While I am still not comfortable with her fire and lack of balance, I am reminded of the words of Frederick Douglass: "Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its waters... Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will."

black looks is a phenomenal book -- hooks' examines race in a multitude of complex and interesting ways (including theorizing whiteness, an essay on madonna,and an essay called "the oppositional gaze" which challenges conventional feminist film theory). while i don't agree with everything hooks has to say, i think she's someone who is worth listening to.

The book speaks for itself. There aren't enough adjectives in the english language to describe the dynamics of this book. I don't have anything more to say,except 'READ IT.'

fabulous first full encounter with bell hooks 6. Juni 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Until now I have only read excerpts from bell hooks' works. Then I recently saw a C-Span program in which bell hooks led a discussion with a college audience. Reminded of the intriguing excerpts I had read, I chose Black Looks as my first full encounter with this intriguing woman's thoughts.
I did not examine the readers' comments on Black Looks until completing the book, but I too would like to take the opportunity to give the book my whole-hearted endorsement for everyone's perusal.
Unlike the reader who began a review highlighting his leftist political affiliation and interracial marriage/family, I DO believe that this book was intended for that individual reader, as it was intended for me, a white female -- and for all men and women of all colors, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. One's skin color, (marriage) partner, children, class status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, and gender, among many other characteristics, do not determine one's dedication to overcoming the racist, heterosexist, capitalist patriarchy. Indeed, I think that this idea is a theme running throughout Black Looks, as evidenced in bell hooks' essays on Clarence Thomas and Madonna.
I do not find incivility in bell hooks' thoughtful expressions and critiques. Rather, I find a much-needed naming of the incivilities that happen to people in this world, due to various "-ism"s and those who espouse them.
Complaints of "bias" or "slant" in bell hooks' essays and other works seem nonsensical to me, when I recall that no human being's thoughts, feelings, and perspective are "objective." Moreover, "objectivity" is not a quality that one desires in cultural criticism, which functions to set forth an alternative point of view that is so often silenced. An individual who feels the need for "objectivity" in Black Looks might seriously question whether any book, television program, song, or other form of media is "objective," including those forms of communication that comprise mass media.
I think that an individual who can accept that this book is for him/her can also begin to look at mass media with a more critical gaze, an activity that is sorely needed after the hours of unquestioning consumption of TV/movies that fills the evenings and weekends of many Americans.

Powerfully Moving 25. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm biracial . . . my father is white and my mother is black, Latina, and Asian. hooks makes us look deeply and critically at the linkages of race, class, gender, and sexuality in ways that are painfully honest and moving. Oppression is never an easy topic. As she has stated, reading hooks' work should make us feel angry, sad, & uncomfortable. Finally, an intellectual who goes beyond the "taken-for-granted" simplistic non-analysis and makes us THINK DEEPLY! This book is a classic!
