Product description

Few modern voices have had as profound an impact on the black identity and critical race theory as Frantz Fanon's, and Black Skin, White Masks represents some of his most important work. Fanon's masterwork is now available in a new translation that updates its language for a new generation of readers. A major influence on civil rights, anticolonial, and black consciousness movements internationally, Black Skin, White Masks is the unsurpassed study of the black psyche in a white world. Hailed for its scientific analysis and poetic grace when it was first published in 1952, the book remains a vital force today from one of the most important theorists of revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history."

Review quote

"A strange, haunting melange of analysis, revolutionary manifesto, metaphysics, prose poetry and literary criticism--and yet the nakedest of human cries." --"Newsweek""A brilliant, vivid and hurt mind, walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair... As a writer he demonstrates how insidiously the problem of race, of color, connects with a whole range of words and images. . . . Yet it is Fanon the man, rather than the medical specialist or intellectual, who makes the book so hard to put down." --Robert Coles, "The New York Times Book Review""A reasoned, explosive, and important book centered on the identity problem of the black man, by the author of a classic study of racism and colonialism, Wretched of the Earth." --"Publishers Weekly""This book should be read by every black man with a desire to understand himself and the forces that conspire against him."--Floyd McKissick, former national director, CORE
