Jean Khalfa and Robert J. Young's erudite, lucid analyses and commentaries contextualizing the selections, and other gems, including correspondence on publishing his works and a catalog of Fanon's library. There is much here not only for scholars but anyone interested in learning more about and from this great revolutionary thinker and fighter for the causes of dignity and freedom.
The volume reaffirms Frantz Fanon's status as a leading twentieth-century philosopher, psychiatrist, decolonial theorist, and revolutionary.
It also reveals a lesser-known Fanon, a Fanon whose previously unpublished works of poeticism and historicism concern themselves with the myriad ways in which we may discern and express the meaning of freedom.
The book is brilliant and the editing of Jean Khalfa and Robert J. Young superb.
The last section on his library lets us share the full intensity of his whole intellectual trajectory-one that influenced the course of decolonial thinking on all continents. Editors Jean Khalfa's and Robert Young's painstaking work is a publishing event and an indispensable resource for anyone interested in understanding alienation and the search for social justice. Young, two of the world's leading scholars of contemporary thought and postcolonial studies, transport us on an off-road adventure, challenging us at every turn to navigate the treacherous terrain of colonialism, global black consciousness, identity, philosophy, psychiatry, and race, hallmarks of the pioneering writings of Frantz Fanon.
Including many previously unavailable or inaccessible essays, this book further confirms Fanon's status as a major global thinker whose insights, the lasting resonance of which, remain of crucial importance to 21st century society. 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.

Kindle Edition Verified download. I actually like the idea of supporting a press that is publishing Fanon. Martin Luther King, Jr. The phrase "by any means necessary" used by the Panthers often scared the bejeezus out of the white community.
But when I sat down with my father -- who was an adherent of formal nonviolence -- he handed me Fanon to read, and told me that it was a valid investigation as to whether violence should be considered if nonviolent means were not entertained by the state. To my dad, who was a peaceful but fiercely justice-oriented man for those of you who know the idiom "fire of Amos" he had it , he considered that without the counterpoint of the Panthers, MLK would never have gotten a hearing in Washington DC.
Just the idea that there were revolutionaries in American society looking at American "apartheid" and saying, "We are willing to take care of our own if you separate us. We see our situation as that of a post-colonial slavery society and use the model of African liberation as our model. We are willing to be peaceful if we are given justice in peace, but we do not believe that you are acting in good faith and will use whatever means necessary to see you follow your own promises of justice and see justice for our own people if you will not see that done.
That was actually optimism. But all white Americans heard out of any of that was: That whites had created a system that instituted violence to keep slaves, and later free blacks, contained and preserve power and privilege for the white majority.
It is hard for most Americans to even realize that America -- although we became independent from England -- continued as a colonial nation and economy on our own continent and territory. That all the institutions of the repression and destruction of indigenous and imported-slave cultures that happened "over there" in countries that Europeans colonized far from home, we did at home as a break-away colony, and the Europeans who conquered America never relented, compromised, or acknowledged that colonial reality in the way that the Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Italian, French, and British Empires did in their colonial domains.
So Fanon is someone worth reading, not only for Africans, or for African-Americans, but for any American or anyone else in the world who wants to better ponder white privilege in America and how it became so very different from colonial privilege as that faded in Africa, through the lens of this Algerian revolutionary philosopher, who so influenced our Panthers.
I remain committed to nonviolence personally, but I understand intensely how MLK and Malcolm balance each other.
And how that can actually lead to better peaceful solutions, in a social justice conflict where the status quo has been preserved by judicial and extrajudicial violence by a superior force.
This is still relevant in puppet regimes all over the world. In client states of capitalist powers and of Russia and China. In the conflicts surrounding Israel, and the conflicts throughout the Middle East and Central Asia that are often couched in sectarian terms or sectarian vs secular terms. It is vital to understanding countries like Zimbabwe or South Africa, where the dynamics of early black leadership as colonial-wannabes are creating environments of corruption and scandal, and robbing their own people.
Everyone should read Fanon. If you can't afford the book here, you can find it online free. This book, and Black Skin, White Masks, both highly recommended.
The philosophy, sociology, and psychology is amazing. The interesting thing about Canon and this book is that, the tone sounds all too familiar and yet is unique at the same time. Instead of being just one long diatribe about the ills of colonialism, this book goes in-depth into the psychology of the colonized. Even more remarkable is his piercing, undeniably accurate perspective of the mindset of the leaders of the newly independent countries of Africa.
While, as the translator even alluded to in his commentary, many of his views particularly on pan-africanism were wrong, he was prophetic in his description of the African ruling class. Essentially, African nations since independence have taken the very template the colonizers used on them, and neo-colonialist still use today.
I won't stretch this much beyond what has already been said in this book. One only needs to look at Africa and the Caribbean for that matter, today, to see all of Fanon's key points checked off.
Easily one of the most extraordinary takes on the subject I've come across.
Paperback Verified download. Historical writings of Fanon, kind of hand in hand with Sartre, a requirement to understand the social upheavals of the 50's and 60's, which led to the Paris riots and all that followed. Not light reading, but certainly required of historians of colonialism, wars of liberation, and all that.
This book is essentially a primer on how to decolonize. Fanon goes into great detail about the dynamics among the colonizers and the colonized. Frankly, it gets a bit tedious and I found myself really skimming through massive chunks of it.
One person found this helpful. This is my first reading of both this text and Fanon in general. In reading this book I am beginnjng to get a grasp on just how pernicious colonialism was then and the stranglehold it still has on black folks around the world.
