Where We Stand: Class Matters by bell hooks

All books written by bell hooks are powerful, direct, and very brave. Exactly when I was hoping bell would write a book about class, I discovered this one. Her writings about love lead to exploration of capitalism and its social structure more in depth, to strengthen points about the ways class loyalties and antagonisms prevent love ethic from becoming embraced by the society as a whole.

What I especially appreciate in Where We Stand are the two quite extraordinary qualities: a) bell showed us that we can talk and write about class without using "post-modern" or difficult to comprehend terminology, and b) she is not afraid to call to action, to change this depressing and unjust, cruel and senseless system into "a world where we can all have enough to live fully and well."

She started the book with self-critique, almost apologizing for not having enough theoretical knowledge to talk about class issues. However, bell is able to discuss very different aspects of class, such as class ideology (or the dominant social ideology being the ideology of the ruling class), class consciousness of the working class and intellectuals, intersections of class, race and gender, crossing class boundaries, and a vision of a classless society--society--without class hierarchies or antagonistic classes.

I read somewhere that some book reviews called this book a "novel". Where We Stand is not a novel, but I prefer to see this as compliment. bell masterfully intertwined her personal experiences and her family stories into the general discussion about class. Her feminist methodology brings much needed approach and analysis of one indivisible social system that is at the same time patriarchal, capitalist/imperialist, and white supremacist on a global scale.

bell hooks is always brave and principled. Her integrity is intact as she writes about the most important issues of our time. In addition, we can witness that she lives according to her values. She is compassionate and openly declares her solidarity with the working class and all of the people that Marx called proletariat. bell chose to live on a smaller income, without security that institutions provide, and to live simply.
Not only are the topics that bell writes about revolutionary, but she herself lives as an intellectual capable of leading a revolutionary movement.

I expect some critics to say that all aspects of class are not explored in this book, nor are those discussed explored in depth. Some will be tempted to say that bell is using Marx's concepts and creating relatively new terminology, as would many say that Anthony Giddens (Capitalism and Modern Social Theory; Class, Power and Conflict) is very much influenced by Marx. I understand that this book is only her first step, an introduction to a number of explorations of class issues in the contemporary American society, as well as one of her first calls for unity and strong advocacy for abolition of class and all other hierarchies.

Considering much of hooks' social theory, I see most parallels with Erich Fromm's work. Fromm wrote about "productive love" and "productive work", but he was also a very sharp critic of capitalism, exploitation, and alienation from our basic human needs, arguing for "productive humanistic communitarian socialism". Very much influenced by Marx, Fromm's theory of class also focuses on raising individual, group, and social conciseness in order to change the society into a future form that would allow us "to be" instead of "to have" and fulfill our basic human needs.

In terms of style, bell's way of writing resembles Joanna Kadi's Thinking Class who reaffirmed that working class members of our society are among best thinkers and most important agents of social change.

I cannot even begin to relay how much I learned from this text. It contains a deep explanation of class, marginal societies and the reasons why class matters in our society. I purchased this for school, but it is interesting enough and has enough valid research, that it can be read and enjoyed otherwise.

A sure thing no matter what your class.

OMG, how many times have I recommended this book to readers across ages- which is saying a lot for a university lecturer. I find bell hooks' writing to be refreshingly frank, but also instructive- she'll make you want to write AND her writing an improve YOURS. This was also the last book that I read with my grandmother- a woman a generation older, and from even deeper south than hooks. Granny said THIS book was spot on- validating even.

I read this for my sociology class. This is an eye opener about class, we all known it exists but cannot identify. It was interesting to read that not everyone of a particular race has the same views when they are of a different class, views of working class blacks and elite blacks are not the same. It makes sense to share similar beliefs to people whom you share the same class with and therefore certain factors within life. The media as I know tells only one side of a narrative, so it's not surprising that when it comes to depicting others the media chooses to portray them negatively. This book has opened my eyes to the different isms associated with different classes. It was astonishing to me that people see themselves within a particular class and with a particular amount of money, that they are able to spend beyond there means. This isn't my first bell hooks reading, but I like how she uses herself and experiences to enhance the message of the story. This is my second bell hooks reading and it won't be my last.
