“Masterful. A thinking women’s (and man’s) valentine, a fitting conclusion to hooks’ groundbreaking work on love in American life.” (Los Angeles Times)

“A powerful guidebook to life.” (Library Journal)


Communion challenges women to restore the search for love to its rightful place at the centre of our lives, as the journey we must choose to be truly free, bell hooks, renowned visionary and intellectual, explores the ways in which ideas about women and love have been changed by the feminist movement, by our full participation in the workforce and by the culture of self-help. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wise, humane, and well worth reading. 7. März 2002
Von Lawrence W. Prichard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read journal articles by bell hooks, but this is the first book I have read of hers. It won't be my last book by her.
Communion: The Female Search for Love is part memoir, part challenge, and very thoughtprovoking.
One aspect I liked best was her debunking of the myth of "women who love too much." Another center of focus is the effect of gainful employment on the perceptions of love.
Her language is direct and clear, but not simplistic.
This is a very good book, and one that I hope will be widely read and discussed.
Even though her subtitle is "The Female Search for Love," men can learn from this worthwhile book, if they have the courage to read it.
This might be an excellent choice for a book group.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Love from a feminist perspective 19. Februar 2003
Von BigHeart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Communion is a discussion and legitimization of the pursuit of love from a mid-life feminist perspective. Hooks believes that the desire to understand how love works is a serious, important, and ultimately joyful life-work activity that should be studied and taught. The big question she attempts to answer is how to "find, keep, and make love despite the power of patriarchy."
The best part of this book is that Hooks always tells the truth as she sees it. There is no glossing over or contriving to make a point. Sometimes her language is sexually explicit and blunt. She explains love from the perspective of her own personal life experience and through intelligent observation and study of our culture and gender practices. The impact of the feminist movement is woven through her assessment. Unlike many other feminists, however, Hook's voice is not militant.
There is only one caution. The ever-present temptation for Hooks and for all of us is to find excuses why we cannot find love or be loving. From the ego's perspective, there is always a so-called justifiable reason for the rejection of another. In this case, the justifiable reason is patriarchy. However, unconditional love means that we undo the hate inour minds and extend love no matter what distressing disguise is presented to us.

4.0 von 5 Sternen not her best but still good 12. September 2004
Von Naoki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
And for a reader who is not hip to feminist thought or lit, this is a good soft entry. I enjoyed bell hooks analogies and statements regarding that women do seek love in so many ways and her most important point was that many women do not receive non-sexual love from men, which is necessary for balance in life, thus forcing them to seek it in so many other ways.

This book encouraged me to read and understand other bell hooks books that are phenomenal. I respect hooks for offering a wide spectrum on emotions, and reality

5.0 von 5 Sternen Self love radiating out to others 19. Januar 2003
Von rainqueen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Simply wonderful. Covers not only romantic, familial, and friendly relationships but focuses on the heart of the matter: women loving and respecting ourselves. Choosing appropriate relationships and nurturing them is only one part of that more important aim. bell hooks urges us to focus on being complete within ourselves - difficult for all women in our culture, particularly so for women of color.
Her observations are wise. Her grasp of history is absolute. Her ideas stimulate intelligent and loving thought, conversation, and action. Read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive! 14. Juni 2002
Von mp541 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to admit that I was both surprised and pleased by this body of work. This book is the best out of the love trilogy. She challenges women to dare to love beyond the romantic/sex paradigm. Also, she is brutally honest about how hard it is to find a partner who is truly unshackled from the chains of domination. Kudos to bell for writing on a very complicated topic: love.
