bell hooks, one of America's leading black intellectuals, was one of our most clear-eyed and penetrating analysts of culture. "Outlaw Culture " -- the culture of the margin, of women, of the disenfranchised, of racial and other minorities -- lies at the heart of bell hooks' America. Raising her powerful voice against racism and other forms of oppression in the United States, hooks unlocks the politics of representation and the meaning of that politics for and in our lives.

Using the mix of essays and highly personal dialogues for which she is well known, "Outlaw Culture" gives us hooks on Spike Lee and Naomi Wolf, Malcolm X and Madonna, Camille Paglia, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ice Cube, and such films as "The Bodyguard" and "The Crying Game."
