    DescriptionThe explosion will not happen today. It is too soon ...or too late. First published in English in 1968, Frantz Fanon's seminal text was immediately acclaimed as a classic of black liberationalist writing. Fanon's descriptions of the feelings of inadequacy and dependence experienced by people of colour in a white world are as salient and as compelling as ever. Fanon identifies a devastating pathology at the heart of Western culture, a denial of difference, that persists to this day. His writings speak to all who continue the struggle for political and cultural liberation in our troubled times.

    Author Information
    Frantz Fanon (1925-61) was born in the French Caribbean island of Martinique. He studied medicine and psychiatry in France and worked in a hospital in Algeria between 1953 and 1956. He passionately identified with Algeria's armed struggle for independence and this led him to write The Wretched of the Earth (1961) which became a manifesto for the Third World. Black Skin, White Masks was first published in France in 1952.
    Review quote
    One feels a brilliant, vivid and hurt mind walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair. -- New York Times A strange, haunting melange of existential analysis, revolutionary manifesto, metaphysics, prose, poetry and literary criticism. -- Newsweek Fanon's analysis of crippled colonial mentalities may be even more salient now than it was then. -- New Statesman
