All About Love - New Visions by bell hooks


From one of America’s most revered thinkers comes a love song for the nation. A visionary and accessible book, bell hooks All About Love offers radical new ways to think about love. Here, hooks, one of our most acute social critics, takes the themes that put her on the map--the relationship between love and sexuality, and the interconnectedness between the public and the private--and challenges the prevailing notion that romantic love is more important than all other bonds.

All About Love is a blueprint for finding myriad types of love, which hold the redemptive power to change minds and lives. In thirteen concise chapters, hooks explains how our everyday notions of what it means to give and receive love often fail us, and how these ideals are established in early childhood. By challenging us to think of love as an action, not a feeling, hooks offers a rethinking of self-love (not narcissism) that wil bring peace and compassion to out personal and professional lives.

Imaginative and original, hooks shows how love heals the wounds we bear as individuals and as a nation. All About Love, written in vivid, provocative, and sensual language, is as much about culture as it is about intimacy. In exploring the ties between love and loss, hooks takes us on a journey that is sacred and transcendent. Her destination: our own hearts and communities.
