Frantz Fanon is best known as one of the leading twentieth-century political thinkers and activists against colonialism and imperialism and as the author of the iconic book 'Wretched of the Earth'. Leo Zeilig here details the life of Fanon-from his upbringing in Martinique to his wartime experiences and work in Europe and North Africa-and frames his ideas and activism within the greater context of his career as a practising psychiatrist and his politically tumultuous surroundings. The book covers the period of the Algerian War of Independence, national liberation and what Fanon described 'the curse of independence'. Highlighting Fanon's role as the most influential theorist of third-world liberation, this book is an essential work for students, academics and general readers.
Leo Zeilig is Visiting Researcher at University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. He was previously a senior researcher at the Centre for Sociological Research at the University of Johannesburg and holds a PhD from Brunel University.
