From the publisher

Doctor, militant, political essayist, ambassador, teacher, journalist, pan-Africanist: Frantz Fanon represented a new model of engaged intellectual who sought to decolonize mid-twentieth-century thought, society and culture and move beyond the ideology of race. Born Black in colonial Martinique, he fought for France during the Second World War but later renounced his native land and aspired to be Algerian during the Algerian War of Independence. Emphasizing Fanon's gift for self-invention and performance, Frantz Fanon charts the key turning points in his short, extraordinary life and explores how his pioneering work in psychiatry influenced his revolutionary philosophy. It is essential reading for those who wish to know more about this unique, visionary figure.
