More About the Author
One feels a brilliant, vivid and hurt mind walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair. --New York Times
A strange, haunting melange of existential analysis, revolutionary manifesto, metaphysics, prose, poetry and literary criticism. --Newsweek
Fanon's analysis of crippled colonial mentalities may be even more salient now than it was then. --New Statesman
About the Author
Frantz Fanon (1925-61) was born in the French Caribbean island of Martinique. He studied medicine and psychiatry in France and worked in a hospital in Algeria between 1953 and 1956. He passionately identified with Algeria's armed struggle for independence and this led him to write The Wretched of the Earth (1961) which became a manifesto for the Third World. Black Skin, White Masks was first published in France in 1952.

I recommend this book along with: THE USURPER AND OTHER STORIES, A BLADE OF GRASS, DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE , TRIPLE AGENT DOUBLE CROSS
Can't seem to shake the feeling that this book, even after all this time, describes most black people out there in the world and also their views on life, love, work and other subjects. Being black myself i was able to agree with what i read and also learn a few things and this might be because the writer was a psychiatrist.
The book is laid out in a way that is easy to read and follow. Frantz Fanon is a great writer and from what i've read so far i believe he was a great psychiatrist as well.
Worth a read for sure.
The factual and educated study makes it very informational and opening point for further investigation of racial studies.
