"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, the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist skewers our view of love as romance. In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness. As bell hooks uses her incisive mind and razor-sharp pen to explore the question "What is love?" her answers strike at both the mind and heart. In thirteen concise chapters, hooks examines her own search for emotional connection and society's failure to provide a model for learning to love. 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 the individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the "100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life." All About Love is a powerful affirmation of just how profoundly she can.

Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
An intimate and illuminating look at how love shapes our culture and our lives. Unruly, unpredictable—love is a maddening deity. In this insightful and eloquent meditation on that many-splendored thing, Lisa Appignanesi draws together psychology, literature, popular culture, and her own experiences in order to tangle with love's paradoxes across the span of our lives. Beginning with the rose-tinted raptures of first love, she proceeds to love in marriage, triangulated love, jealousy and adultery, love in the family, and friendship. By illuminating the expectations, the joys and difficulties, and the cultural undercurrents that accompany each stage, Appignanesi raises provocative questions about love in the twenty-first century: Has the unbinding of obstacles to love emptied it of meaning? Do our desires for variety and experimentation result in increased anxiety? What gains and losses have come from greater openness and equality and the burgeoning sphere of virtual fantasy? As rewarding as it is captivating, All about Love will leave you a little wiser about the emotion that rules our lives.

Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
A lot has been written about Michael Jackson! His musical genius has been analyzed, his life has been told in ever so many versions, his persona has created reactions from deep admiration to hate. But there is one thing, one big topic that played such a huge role in Michael's life and career but still has always been neglected: his relationship to his fans! This very special bond that existed between Michael and his fans around the world generated stories that have never been told before and shows a facet of Michael that the general public is not even aware of! "It's all about L.O.V.E" is a book that contains stories and poems that no journalist, no biographer and no editor in this world could ever write about Michael Jackson. It not only shows the immense inspiration Michael was to his fans but also includes true stories of fans meeting Michael backstage right before his concert or on the set of "In the closet," talking to Michael on the phone, giving an artwork-presentation to him, having a nightly conversation with him or even visiting Michael at home in Neverland. These are stories that only his fans can tell! May this book help to keep his memory alive for many generations of fans that will follow. Not of Michael Jackson the mega star, the Moonwalker or King of Pop - just of Michael, the man who so self-sacrificingly tried to show the world that it is all about L.O.V.E!
