Summary

An incisive and illuminating account of how, during the Algerian Revolution, the people of Algeria changed centuries-old cultural patterns and embraced certain ancient cultural practices long derided by their colonialist oppressors as primitive, in order to destroy those same oppressors. Fanon uses the fifth year of the Algerian Revolution as a point of departure for an explication of the inevitable dynamics of colonial oppression.

Author Biography

Frantz Fanon was born in Martinique in 1925 and studied medicine in France, specializing in psychiatry. He was sent to a hospital in Algeria, where his sympathies turned toward the Algerian Nationalist Movement, which he later joined. He is considered this century's most important theorist of the African struggle for independence. Also available from Grove Press are Black Skin, White Masks, Toward the African Revolution, and The Wretched of the Earth, which has been translated into over twenty-five languages, with more than one million copies in print in English alone.
