Summary:

A distinguished psychiatrist from Martinique who took part in the Algerian Nationalist Movement, Frantz Fanon was one of the most important theorists of revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history. Fanon's masterwork is a classic alongside Edward Said's ORIENTALISM or THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM S, and it is now available in a new translation that updates its language for a new generation of readers. THE WRETCHED OF THE EARTH is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage and frustration of colonized peoples, and the role of violence in effecting historical change, the book incisively attacks the twin perils of postindependence colonial politics: the disenfranchisement of the masses by the elites on the one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. Fanon's analysis, a veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, has been reflected all too clearly in the corruption and violence that has plagued present-day Africa. THE WRTCHED OF THE EARTH has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black consciousness movements around the world. -- from back cover.
