Description du produit

Revue de presse

From executioners in modern-day Florida, to the Ku Klux Klan, to hug a hoodie Cameron this scholarly study explores a complicated cultural history ... [Kinney's] argument about the connection between hoods and power is a strong one ... The book is at its best on the connections between hoods and marginalised communities.
-- The Guardian

[Hood] is part of a series entitled Object Lessons, which looks at the hidden lives of ordinary things and which are all utterly Fridge Brilliant (defined by TV Tropes as an experience of sudden revelation, like the light coming on when you open a refrigerator door). ... [I]n many ways Hood isn t about hoods at all. It s about what and who is under the hood. It s about the hooding, the hooders and the hoodees ... [and] identity, power and politics. ... Kinney s book certainly reveals the complex history of the hood in America.
-- London Review of Books

Part of the publisher Bloomsbury's Object Lessons series, Hood contains a definite chill as Kinney tracks the history and significance of the garment through the 15th century to the present. ... Kinney tells a riveting story of the origins of the Ku Klux Klan's hooded uniforms. ... This examination is part of the strength of the Object Lessons series. (Other titles look at Silence, Glass, and Dust.) Kinney, a writer in Brooklyn, New York, knits seemingly disparate subjects burkinis and gentrification, for example together in such a way that the connection is instantly appreciated and she does her work in fewer than 200 pages. It's thought-provoking without the lecture. In examining these small yet significant objects of daily life, we find new meaning in the world around us. Next time you get a little chilly and reach for your hoodie, thank Kinney for this history lesson. -- The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards Book Review

Provocative and highly informative, Alison Kinney's Hood considers this seemingly neutral garment accessory and reveals it to be vexed by a long history of violence, from the Grim Reaper to the KKK and beyond a history we would do well to address, and redress. Readers will never see hoods the same way again. --Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking

In spry and intelligent prose, Alison Kinney tours the many uses of the hood in human culture, exploring seemingly unconnected byways and guiding the reader through some surprising connections. The ubiquitous hood, she shows, is an artifact of human relationships with power, the state, and one another. By the end of my time with Hood, I had laughed out loud, sighed in exasperation, and felt by turns both furious and proud. --Rebecca Onion, history writer for Slate Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.

We all wear hoods: the Grim Reaper, Red Riding Hood, torturers, executioners and the executed, athletes, laborers, anarchists, rappers, babies in onesies, and anyone who s ever grabbed a hoodie on a chilly day. Alison Kinney s Hood explores the material and symbolic vibrancy of this everyday garment and political semaphore, which often protects the powerful at the expense of the powerless with deadly results. Kinney considers medieval clerics and the Klan, anti-hoodie campaigns and the Hooded Man of Abu Ghraib, the Inquisition and the murder of Trayvon Martin, uncovering both the hooded perpetrators of violence and the hooded victims in their sights.

Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.
