* The complete guide to one of the most important Black theorists* An introduction to and an anthology of a major twentieth century philosopher and activistFrantz Fanon was a revolutionary writer and journalist and is now a key figure in cultural studies. Born in 1925 on the French Caribbean island of Martinique, he passionately identified with Algeria's armed struggle for independence against the French, and with the publication of "Black Skin, White Masks" (1952) and "The Wretched of the Earth" (1961) he became the leading voice in black liberationist writing. His work on racism and colonialism continues to reverberate today, and his ideas are of interest to all those who struggle for political and cultural liberation. With the publication of "The Fanon Reader," it is now possible to access all his major theories in one source. This introduction includes extracts from each of Fanon's major works, including "Black Skin, White Masks, Studies in a Dying Colonialism," "The Wretched of the Earth," and "Towards an African Revolution." Haddour contextualizes Fanon - the man and his work - and provides a comprehensive summary of critical perspectives on his writing. This fully rounded critical introduction to Fanon's work will appeal to students and teachers in post-colonial studies, philosophy, political theory, psychoanalysis, literary theory, race studies and anyone interested in the life and writings of one of the world's most foremost pioneers of black liberation.
