An eminent psychiatrist from Martinique who took part in the Algerian Nationalist Movement, Frantz Fanon was one of the most important theorists of the revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history.Fanon’s masterpiece is a classic beside Edward Said’s Orientalism or Autobiography of Malcolm X, and it is now available in a new translation that updates its language for a new generation of readers.The Damned of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of colonized and their way to liberation.Bearing a singular glimpse of the rage and frustration of colonized peoples, and the role of violence in the implementation of historical change, the book incisively attacks the two dangers of post-independence colonial politics: the emancipation of the masses by the elites on the one hand, and intertribal and inter-religious hatred on the other.Fanon analysis, a veritable handbook of reorganisation of society, for leaders of emerging countries, has been translated that too clearly in the corruption and violence that has marked Africa today.The Damned of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anti-colonialism and black consciousness movements around the world, and this bold new translation of Richard Philcox reaffirms as a landmark”
