Oktober 1996 Owl Book
One of our country’s premier cultural and social critics, bell hooks has always maintained that eradicating racism and eradicating sexism must go hand in hand. But whereas many women have been recognized for their writing on gender politics, the female voice has been all but locked out of the public discourse on race.

Killing Rage speaks to this imbalance. These twenty-three essays are written from a black and feminist perspective, and they tackle the bitter difficulties of racism by envisioning a world without it. They address a spectrum of topics having to do with race and racism in the United States: psychological trauma among African Americans; friendship between black women and white women; anti-Semitism and racism; and internalized racism in movies and the media. And in the title essay, hooks writes about the “killing rage”—the fierce anger of black people stung by repeated instances of everyday racism—finding in that rage a healing source of love and strength and a catalyst for positive change.

bell hooks is Distinguished Professor of English at City College of New York. She is the author of the memoir Bone Black as well as eleven other books. She lives in New York City.

Bell Hooks, the influential writer of Ain't I A Woman?, offers a black and feminist perspective on the issue of race in America. Throughout the 23 essays, Hooks seeks a way out of the cycle of racism. A provocative voice seeking wisdom in the din, she boldly asserts "this nation can be transformed... we can resist racism and in the act of resistance recover ourselves and be renewed." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


“Her books help us not only to decolonize our minds, souls, and bodies; on a deeper level, they touch our lives.”—Cornel West

“Almost everyone’s assumptions about race will be challenged in this volume
. . . Anyone who is not in denial about racism will be motivated to work for its demise after reading Killing Rage.”—Emerge

“An angry book that pulls no punches . . . Her frankness and willingness to face up to the divisive issues that refuse to go away make her a voice to be reckoned with in the debate on race in America.”—The New York Review of Books

4.0 von 5 Sternen (Review) Killing Rage: Ending Racism 25. April 2000
Von Brad Ball
Killing Rage addresses a spectrum of sum and substance centered on race, racism, and sexism. And while it is possible for certain readers (color or white, men or women) to regard these adjoined essays as acrimonious or unmerited, I discovered them to be both discerning and penetrating. Being a white male I could have simply dismissed the book out of hand or perceived the author as a witch with a topped-off shoulder full of chips. But those reactions would have been dogmatic and unfair to both hooks and myself, besides I would have been submitting to the very concerns she writes about. I may not agree entirely with portions of her reasoning or writing, but I do respect and appreciate her in-your-face method of writing.

Von Ein Kunde
This will challenge every thought and idea you have ever had on race, racism and rage. I do not agree with everything hooks has to say, but her literary power kept me reading. This book is required reading in my classroom!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Absolute nonsense 4. Januar 2000
Amazon.com must be practicing censorship. This is the second time I've posted a review of this rambling book of nonsense, yet my first went unprinted.
bell hooks, like her other leftist counterparts (Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson, etc. ad nauseum), are hypocrites in the worst way. These believers in the faith of socialism obviously have no problem living high off the hog of capitalism through their well-paid speaking engagements and advances for their books. Yet they all have the audacity to proselytize weak minds in socialist dogma.
Go figure.
I wish Amazon had a negative star rating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A passionate call for "race talk" and Black consciousness 19. Oktober 2001
Von Bakari Chavanu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I'm sort of a bell hooks fan. I've always liked her keen intelligence, lucid writing, and her ability to name oppressive forces that impact us all.
Many people will not like hooks because she doesn't write from an activist experience. She's primarily a cultural critic, providing insight and analysis rather than strategy and tactics. Her lack of political activism is indeed problematic, but as an activist teacher, I turn to hooks for inspiration and vision for how to engage my students and other folks in the educational community in visions of radical change.
In "Killing Rage," hooks comes on very strong in naming racism as a White, patriarcial, capitalist enterprise. In providing this analysis, hooks is examining instutions of both covert and institutionalized racism, the latter of which is harder to name and explain.
In this work, bell argues that the ending of racism must come through a "collecitve black rage." which means that "Progressive black activists must show how we take that rage and move it beyond fruitless scapegoating of any group, linking it instead to a passion for freedom and justice that illuminates, heals, and makes redemptive struggle possible." In other words, bell is spreaking of what took place in the Black power movement in which collective black rage rose up against racist aparthied in America. But she's not advocating that we build on the Black Power struggles of the sixities. Collective Black rage must include solidarity with Black feminist struggle and solidarity with class struggle along all racial lines.
While hooks does not seek to exclude White allies in the struggle to end racism, "Killing Rage" seems largely targeted to African people. She's calling for African people redefine Black identity, "one that is not sexist, homophobic, patriarchal, or supportive of capitalism."
Lastly, I want to point out how hooks argues that this struggle to end racism must be tied an edcuational agenda. She writes: "Until all black people address the educational crisis in black life, we cannot hope to attain collective self-detremination. As long as progressive radical black folks ignore secondary edcuation and fail to take the initiative to call for and demand progressive anti-racist, anti-sexist education for black children, and all children, our communities will be deluged by folks who see bourgeois partirarchal pedagogy as the only hope." For me, this says it all. I strongly encourage freedom-loving people to read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Facing Racism Head On 23. Februar 2005
Von R. DelParto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Bell Hooks covers all bases with the most pertinent issues that involve racism. KILLING RAGE: ENDING RACISM is an interesting critical assessment that does not only involve African Americans, but all Americans who want to understand why racism still exists. Three major issues in the book remain in my mind and were constantly repeated in most of the chapters: self-determination, White Supremacy, and decolonization. These issues, according to Hooks, are the root and the action for resolve in understanding the racism in the United States. For a long time, the "R" word has been an invisible subject, that never comes to a resolve when it is discussed -- a neverending circle. Hooks suggests that there is a sense of denial or amnesia.

Hooks makes a good point when she discusses the issue of race as it pertains whether or not black and white women can be friends. She concludes: "If white and black women were collectively working to change society so that we could know one another better and be able to offer acknowledgment and respect, then we would be playing a major role in ending racism. As long as white and black women are content with living separately in a state of psychic social apartheid, racism will not change"(224). She goes on about patriarchy and sexism, which tend to be the where incohesiveness exists. However, white and black women relations have more in common in ending the gap by building a bridge toward activism.

For the most part, when it all comes down to it, everything that Hooks discusses leads to "let's face" the problem of racism. She states that it is possible, and it all depends on the individual, and building a community that educates and talks about learning about racism and how to deter it. KILLING RAGE is one of many books that critically analyzes racism, and Hooks' criticism was extremely understandable and directly to the point.

However, the book may have been more effective if she provided the voices, such as oral testimonies, of the people that have helped to deter the problem. The majority of the sources she used were predominantly secondary sources from previous scholarship. She makes assumptions, which contribute to a little gray areas in the book, such as when she briefly refers to non-blacks and how they may fit into the equation -- Native Americans and Asians. But overall, this is an important subject that needs attention as long as the problem exists.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life-Changing 4. April 2008
Von moclbe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This was my first bell hooks book and, while I wouldn't say I am anywhere near as militant as she is, it gave voice to so many concerns I'd had over the years but didn't have the words or insight to explain. What a magnificent work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen bell hooks is a voice for black women 1. August 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is priceless! It's one of those books that made me go, "She sees it too! I've always noticed that but I always thought I was the only one that thought about it this way!"
hooks says what millions of African Americans have been made to feel guilty for thinking...we are angry, and it's justified! hooks dismantles and analyzes the mechanics of racism in this country with a boldness and precision that can only be envied by the so-called political and social leaders of the Black community today. The way that she approaches such taboo topics as sexism and color discrimination within the African American community is excellent. I am so glad to now feel that I am not the only black woman to be bothered by and concerned with these issues.
hooks not only gives insight into and clear explanations of such problems but also offers positive solutions. I was especially impressed with her demand that Blacks begin to pay attention the psychological damage caused by racism and that our mental health professionals begin considering our special history in this country when creating their theories.
hooks basically calls for Blacks to stop denying the pain, anger and resentment that is logically caused by our past and present position in this country, to stop adopting ideals that don't suit or benefit our people, and to stop internalizing but start being honest about the rage so that we may actually move forward and not just keep going through the motions while still psychologically destructive. She also calls for Whites to stop denying the role that they play in our self-destruction while advising Blacks to resist a victim mentality.
hooks does not hate Whites; she rightfully makes them accountable for their actions, but then also invites them to play their part in reshaping society. It's just an honest book that approaches a lot of topics that many people, Black and White, are usually afraid to touch.
hooks blows the cover off of racist mechanisms that the rest of us have been busy trying to pretend don't exist. Especially those that adversely affect Black women. This is an eye-opener and will definitely lead to some great discussions. Get it and read every chapter!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gives a blunt reflection of A-A attitudes on racim. 12. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book was an eye opener for many who is under the illusion that racism and prejudice in America was a problem of the past and only found now in issolated pockets of America. The book makes us aware of how racism exists in mainstream America that many of us are not always aware of. I did find her critism of black culture, and how it is losing it's identy with black culture of the past to be a bit narrow focused. All nationalities loses it's identity to it's country of origin by the second or third generation. African-Americans are discarding their ethnic roots in the same fashion as any other nationality or culture, and Ms. Hook's critism of today's blacks being unfaithful of their history is just as narrow minded and limiting of what it means to be black as the white society she justifiablly critiques.
