The Wretched of the Earth available as Kwela Pocket Revolutionaries-series

What was the point of fighting if nothing was really destined to change?

In this international classic, Frantz Fanon examines the traumatic effects of colonisation on the colonised. He explains the consequences of a decolonising struggle on individuals and on the nation as a whole as he explores class, race, violence, culture – and freedom. His thought has become freshly topical in South Africa in recent years. A major influence on human rights and liberation struggles around the world, The Wretched of the Earth is particularly current and compelling for South Africans today.

‘The book is the most influential force that moved the #Fallist generation to take action. It is a must-read for all of us in South Africa today.’ – Chumani Maxwele

Frantz Fanon was an Algerian psychologist and one of the most influential theorists of revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history. For decades Fanon’s work has been informed for the fight of decolonisation and international liberation struggles.
