Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Psychiatrist, humanist, revolutionary, Frantz Fanon was one of the great political analysts of our time, the author of such seminal works of modern revolutionary theory as The Wretched of the Earth and Black Skin, White Masks. He has had a profound impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black consciousness movements around the world.

The Wretched of the Earth, Fanon's classic work of modern revolutionary theory, concerns the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. It reflects a people's outrage and frustration, but it is more than a diatribe against Western colonialism. A brilliant and impassioned exam­ination of the role of violence in effecting historical change, The Wretched of the Earth is a veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, and it is necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand the psychology of the oppressed.

Review:

"Have the courage to read this book." Jean-Paul Sartre

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

This book is a must read for students, especially university students taking social sciences. It is inspirational and provokes our intellectural thinking towards politics and governance in our respective societies.
