Outlaw Culture: Resisting Representations - Routledge Classics (Paperback)Bell Hooks (author)
According to the Washington Post, no one who cares about contemporary African-American cultures can ignore bell hooks' electrifying feminist explorations. Targeting cultural icons as diverse as Madonna and Spike Lee, Outlaw Culture presents a collection of essays that pulls no punches. As hooks herself notes, interrogations of popular culture can be a ‘powerful site for intervention, challenge and change’. And intervene, challenge and change is what hooks does best.

Hers is a voice that forces us to confront the political undercurrents of life in America.' - New York Times Book Review'hooks' style is refreshingly brash and accessible and often inflected by personal experience.
