Black Looks,  Race and Representation, Bell Hooks
1 Bell Hooks Black Looks, Race and Representation
Toronto Between the Lines Press 1992 0921284616 / 9780921284611 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Between the Lines Press, 1992. Hardcover, NO dustjacket. Black cloth hardcover book in very nice condition. Pages clean and intact, with no markings. Cover is clean, with slight bumping at corners. ; 8vo; 200 pages; In the critical essays collected in Black Looks, bell hooks interrogates old narratives and argues for alternative ways to look at blackness, black subjectivity, and whiteness. Her focus is on spectatorship—in particular, the way blackness and black people are experienced in literature, music, television, and especially film—and her aim is to create a radical intervention into the way we talk about race and representation. As she describes: "the essays in Black Looks are meant to challenge and unsettle, to disrupt and subvert." As students, scholars, activists, intellectuals, and any other readers who have engaged with the book since its original release in 1992 can attest, that's exactly what these pieces do.

"--Thomas Cripps, New Black Cinema.... "The complement of independent-cinema lies in a politically conscious audience which understands that film is the manipulation of the viewer through its language of images and its creation of reality through the way film is structured.
