As for the book’s description, on Amazon.com:
Frantz Fanon’s classic text has provided inspiration for anti-colonial movements ever since, analysing the role of class, race, national culture and violence in the struggle for freedom. With power and anger, Fanon makes clear the economic and psychological degradation inflicted by imperialism. It was Fanon, himself a psychotherapist, who exposed the connection between colonial war and mental disease, who showed how the fight for freedom must be combined with building a national culture, and who showed the way ahead, through revolutionary violence, to socialism.
Makes the case that de-colonisation has/had no other way of happening but through violent means.
- Powerful horrid image of a young bare-chested black mother, with one arm amputated, breastfeeding a toddler with an amputated leg.
The unknown tales of oppression and suffering in the history of human species are unquantifiable.
