Description

  • Grove Press
  • Frantz Fanon (1925-61) was a Martinique-born black psychiatrist and anticolonialist intellectual; The Wretched of the
    Earth is considered by many to be one of the canonical books on the worldwide black liberation struggles of the 1960s.
    Within a Marxist framework, using a cutting and nonsentimental writing style, Fanon draws upon his horrific experiences
    working in Algeria during its war of independence against France. He addresses the role of violence in decolonization
    and the challenges of political organization and the class collisions and questions of cultural hegemony in the creation
    and maintenance of a new country's national consciousness. As Fanon eloquently writes, "[T]he unpreparedness of the
    educated classes, the lack of practical links between them and the mass of the people, their laziness, and, let it be
    said, their cowardice at the decisive moment of the struggle will give rise to tragic mishaps."

    Although socialism has seemingly collapsed in the years since Fanon's work was first published, there is much in his
    look into the political, racial, and social psyche of the ever-emerging Third World that still rings true at the cusp of
    a new century. --Eugene Holley, Jr.
