IBNA- ‘All About Love: New Visions’, by American influential cultural critic and feminist theorist Gloria Jean Watkins with the pen name bell hooks has been translated into Persian and is available in Iranian bookstores.
The work which is a revelation about what causes a polarized society and how to heal the divisions that cause suffering has been translated into Persian by Azadeh Etehad and released by Khazeh Publishing in 184 pages.
“The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in ‘All About Love’. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness-not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love.
As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation.
The Utne Reader magazine declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” ‘All About Love’ is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.
As one of America's leading public intellectuals, she is a charismatic speaker and writer who teaches and lectures around the world. Previously a professor in the English departments at Yale University and Oberlin College, hooks is the author of more than 17 books.
