Tietoja tekijästä

Martinique islander by birth and a psychiatrist by training, Franz Fanon is better known as a pan-African revolutionary ideologue. His treatises on colonialism call for revolutionary confrontation with malignant colonial regimes, where necessary on the battlefield, and, more important, for the näytä lisää eradication of the most invidious form of colonialism, namely, colonial mentality. Fanon holds that this mentality prevents the African and the black person everywhere even from being aware of the seriousness of the social and personal deprivations of his or her colonized status. Fanon found his voice when he worked for the Algerian revolutionaries during the Algerian War of Independence against the French. Not only did he become deeply involved in the Algerian struggle, he also emerged as its principal ideologue and formulated his anticolonial writings from the Algerian experience.

A distinguished psychiatrist from Martinique who took part in the Algerian Nationalist Movement, Frantz Fanon was one of the most important theorists of revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history. Fanon's masterwork is a classic alongside Edward Said's Orientalism or The Autobiography of Malcolm X.

Black Skin, White Masks is psychologist Frantz Fanon’s analysis of the BlackSkinWhiteMaskspsychological pathologies produced by colonialism, in the West in general and in the French Antilles, in particular. Fanon’s main thesis is that colonialism and racism corrupt the psyche of both blacks and whites, albeit in different ways: “the Negro enslaved by his inferiority [and] the white man enslaved by his superiority alike behave in accordance with a neurotic orientation.”

This book by Frantz Fanon is relevant today. The context of the book is Algeria and French colonialism, so it is interesting for anyone studying French colonialism in Algeria. However, the lessons are timeless.
Many countries suffered from colonialism and continue to struggle to find their national character in the post-colonial world.
Franz Fanton's writing, while balanced, conceals deep anger. There is anger he directs at the colonialists and towards native people who copy the colonialists and exploit their fellow citizens.
The last chapter, in which he talks about some of the mental problems arising from colonialism, is powerful.
The conclusion calls for his citizens to find themselves and not copy their old masters.
This book is brilliant and relevant today.

Pretty amazing. The final chapter, talking about his experience dealing with those traumatised in various ways by colonialism and the war as well as the bullshit given as explanations of Algerian behaviour by French psychiatrists, is horrifying and incredible. He has a great writing style which is clear and gets you caught up in his ideas of liberation - although I sometimes wish he said more on certain issues or whatever, you get a very clear picture of what he thinks. His descriptions of the problems of decolonisation ring true today. Important stuff if you're at all interested in the topic.… (lisätietoja)
