Product description

Fanon, born in Martinique and educated in France, is generally regarded as the leading anti-colonial thinker of the 20th century. His first book is an analysis of the impact of colonial subjugation on the black psyche. It is a very personal account of Fanon's experience being black: as a man, an intellectual, and a party to a French education.--Adapted from

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
