Evoking Sojourner Truth's legendary speech in defense of women's rights, Ain't I A Woman? catalogues the exploitation of working-class women of colour throughout American history, demonstrating how they were frequently betrayed by the people who ought to have been their allies - men of colour and white women. Interweaving theoretical reflections with both history and autobiography, hooks describes the racism inherent in many feminist narratives which fail to address issues of race and class and insists that the struggles to end sexism, classism and racism are inextricably intertwined.

An important work, whose insights are no less applicable to contemporary struggles as to those which raged when it was written, Ain't I A Woman? has become a touchstone for students of gender studies, cultural criticism and social theory across the English-speaking world.
-----------------------------------------------

Few names resonate within contemporary cultural theory as much as that of bell hooks. A pioneering figure in post-modern approaches to gender, race and sexuality, her prodigious output is matched only by the scope of its concern - touching on everything from aesthetics to the politics of identity to the experience of love. These newly re-issued classics are as inspirational as ever.
