Black Skin White Masks

£9.99

Frantz Fanon’s seminal text was immediately acclaimed as a classic of black liberationalist writing. Fanon’s descriptions of the feelings of inadequacy and dependence experienced by people of colour in a white world, ‘the crippled colonial mentalities of the oppressed’, are as salient and as compelling as ever.

Description

‘This century’s most compelling theorist of racism and colonialism’ Angela Davis

‘Fanon is our contemporary … In clear language, in words that can only have been written in the cool heat of rage, Fanon showed us the internal theatre of racism’ Deborah Levy

Frantz Fanon’s urgent, dynamic critique of the effects of racism on the psyche is a landmark study of the black experience in a white world. Drawing on his own life and his work as a psychoanalyst to explore how colonialism’s subjects internalize its prejudices, eventually emulating the ‘white masks’ of their oppressors, it established Fanon as a revolutionary anti-colonialist thinker.

‘So hard to put down … a brilliant, vivid and hurt mind, walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair’ The New York Times Book Review
