Among Bell Hooks’ most popular books, À propos d’amour is a singular text. With her usual insight and popularisation skills, the Afrofeminist author addresses a theme rarely tackled head-on in political theory. Defining love as an act, not a feeling, Bell Hooks dismantles all the barriers that patriarchal culture places in the way of healthy loving relationships, and envisions an art of love that is more than just the thrill of attraction or simple tenderness. Using moral philosophy as well as psychology, she attacks the snide cynicism that surrounds discussions about love, and seeks to restore the possibility of love from a feminist perspective.
