5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely courageous and brilliant, 15 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom (Harvest in Translation) (Paperback)
Is there a more gifted writer in the world today? bell hooks demonstrates how white male patriarchy has influenced white feminist discourse, making it difficult for Black feminists to be heard. This is incredibly brave writing, and a must read for anyone interested in subverting the paradigms of the white male agenda of eurocentric patriarchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars superp and moving, 26 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom (Harvest in Translation) (Paperback)
bell hooks challenges the economically and educationally advantaged white feminists who would conduct their discourse amongst themselves rather than allow a Black woman to offer her own ideas. In fact, ideas are the purpose of this book, allowing ideas to proliferate in the classroom instead of allowing racist stereotypes prevail. This is a courageous and brilliant book, and something of a threat to the institutionalized and priviledged feminism of white women, particularly at the universities of this country. White feminists ignore this book at their peril, and should read it immediately.

Bell Hooks is probably one of the most interesting and accessible writers on education as a practice of freedom - every teacher and every student should read this book at least once a year!

Very simply, i think she is a brilliant mind with a fantastic heart and way of perceiving the world. I initially read her book 'Communion, the female search for love' and now that i am going into teaching was pleasantly surprised to find out she is also an educator and still teaches. I am now on a mission to read all of her books. Simply wonderful and insightful and a must read for people who are interested in pursuing change through education.
