Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Frantz Fanon's urgent, dynamic critique of the effects of racism on the psyche is a landmark study of the Black experience in a white world. Drawing on his own life and his work as a psychoanalyst to explore how colonialism's subjects internalize its prejudices, eventually emulating the 'white masks' of their oppressors, it established Fanon as a revolutionary anti-colonialist thinker.

Critic Reviews

"This century's most compelling theorist of racism and colonialism." (Angela Davis)

"Fanon is our contemporary.... In clear language, in words that can only have been written in the cool heat of rage, Fanon showed us the internal theatre of racism." (Deborah Levy)

"So hard to put down...a brilliant, vivid and hurt mind, walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair." (The New York Times Book Review)
