This month we are incredibly excited to be publishing Ain't I A Woman by groundbreaking feminist bell hooks.
'Visionary' – New Statesman
'One of the twenty most influential women's books of the last twenty years' – Publishers Weekly
Ain't I a Woman is deeply critical of the racism inherent in the thought of many middle-class white feminists who have failed to address issues of race and class. While acknowledging the conflict of loyalty to race or sex is still a dilemma, hooks challenges the view that race and gender are two separate phenomena, insisting that the struggles to end racism and sexism are inextricably intertwined.
Due to the fact that the UK has left the EU, we're experiencing some problems with post to the EU, especially with post to Sweden. Please be aware that if you are an EU-based subscriber, you may have to pay extra charges to receive your book. We're really sorry. This is a massive problem for many UK-based small organisations such as ourselves. If you have problems receiving your books please let us know.
