Philosopher, psychoanalyst, politician, propagandist, prophet? although difficult to categorize, Frantz Fanon (1925-1961) is one of the most important thinkers of the 20th century and one of our most powerful writers on race and revolution.
Fanon For Beginners provides a clear, detailed introduction to the life and work of the man Jean-Paul Sartre called "the voice of the Third World."
The book opens with a biography, following Fanon from his birthplace of Martinique through combat in World War II and education in France, to his heroic involvement in the fights for Algerian independence and African decolonization.
Fanon For Beginners concludes by examining Fanon?s influence on political practice, such as the Black Power Movement in the United States, on literary theory, and on political studies. This book will serve as both an introduction and a tribute to Frantz Fanon and how his works and words continue to have a profound impact on contemporary cultural debate.
