4.0 von 5 Sternen Provocative, 29. Juni 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Black Looks: Race and Representation (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."

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Black Looks: Race and Representation (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Breathtakingly Amazing", 7. Juni 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Black Looks: Race and Representation (Taschenbuch)
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.'
