The Wretched of the Earth

The Wretched of the Earth

Frantz Fanon

Penguin Modern Classics

Written at the height of the Algerian war for independence from French colonial rule and first published in 1961, Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth 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.
