Fanon, born in Martinique and educated in France, is generally regarded as the leading anti-colonial thinker of the 20th century. His first book is an analysis of the impact of colonial subjugation on the black psyche. It is a very personal account of Fanon's experience being black: as a man, an intellectual, and a party to a French education.--Adapted from wikipedia.org.

Clever sounding title to a clever sounding book... provided you are satisfied by superficial analogies, less-than-sophisticated writing style and entirely subjective reasoning. For one so determined to see racial prejudice everywhere, it is astounding how insensitive, or plain oblivious, Fanon is in his frequent recourse to other varieties of bigotry. I came across this looking for references for my thesis but I won't get taken seriously if I quote this crap.
