BOOK EXCERPT:

"This is one of those rare books that quickly became the standard work in its field. Professor White has done justice to the complexity of her subject."—Anne Firor Scott, Duke University Living with the dual burdens of racism and sexism, slave women in the plantation South assumed roles within the family and community that contrasted sharply with traditional female roles in the larger American society. This new edition of Ar'n't I a Woman? reviews and updates the scholarship on slave women and the slave family, exploring new ways of understanding the intersection of race and gender and comparing the myths that stereotyped female slaves with the realities of their lives. Above all, this groundbreaking study shows us how black women experienced freedom in the Reconstruction South — their heroic struggle to gain their rights, hold their families together, resist economic and sexual oppression, and maintain their sense of womanhood against all odds.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Evoking Sojourner Truth's legendary speech in defense of women's rights, Ain't I A Woman? catalogues the exploitation of working-class women of colour throughout American history, demonstrating how they were frequently betrayed by the people who ought to have been their allies - men of colour and white women. Interweaving theoretical reflections with both history and autobiography, hooks describes the racism inherent in many feminist narratives which fail to address issues of race and class and insists that the struggles to end sexism, classism and racism are inextricably intertwined.An important work, whose insights are no less applicable to contemporary struggles as to those which raged when it was written, Ain't I A Woman? has become a touchstone for students of gender studies, cultural criticism and social theory across the English-speaking world.-----------------------------------------------Few names resonate within contemporary cultural theory as much as that of bell hooks. A pioneering figure in post-modern approaches to gender, race and sexuality, her prodigious output is matched only by the scope of its concern - touching on everything from aesthetics to the politics of identity to the experience of love. These newly re-issued classics are as inspirational as ever.
