Yes, I have been making sure to quote the list, but it doesn't seem to work at all. I've also tried to macroexpand the forms I'm evaluating but the minibuffer just shows a condensed version of the expansion with lots of '...' placeholders. Is there a simple way to macroexpand and pretty print a form without the '...'s ?

Why does this not work:

(defmacro my-add-hooks (hooks &rest body)
  `(dolist (hook ,hooks)
      (my-add-hook hook ,@body)))

It looks like it should work to me. Make sure you quote the list of hooks when calling it, e.g.

(my-add-hooks '(emacs-lisp lisp) (local-set-key ...))
