Review quote

"The writing of Malcolm X or Eldridge Cleaver or Amiri Baraka or the Black Panther leaders reveals how profoundly they have been moved by the thoughts of Frantz Fanon. --"The Boston Globe" "Have the courage to read this book."--Jean-Paul Sartre "This century's most compelling theorist of racism and colonialism." -Angela Davis "The value of The Wretched of the Earth [lies] in its relation to direct experience, in the perspective of the Algerian revolution. . . . Fanon forces his readers to see the Algerian revolution--and by analogy other contemporary revolutions--from the viewpoint of the rebels."--Conor Cruise O'Brien, "Nation" "The Wretched of the Earth is an explosion."--Emile Capouya, "Saturday Review" "This is not so much a book as a rock thrown through the window of the West. It is the Communist Manifesto or the Mein Kampf of the anticolonial revolution, and as such it is highly important for any Western reader who wants to understand the emotional force behind that revolution."--"Time"
