I haven't read anything by bell hooks that I didn't like, but this one really lit a fire in me. When I first picked up the book I thought the title meant "killing rage" as in to destroy rage, but actually she is explaining and justifying the rage that oppressed folks feel towards their oppressor that makes them want to murder them.
In traditional bell hooks fashion she looks at not just racism, but sexism and class-ism as well.
