An honest review of Oppression.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Fanon's life and work surrounded the psychological aspects of the oppression and manipulation of Africans and other colonized peoples. He was a devote fighter for Liberation and to a lesser degree Marxism. While the book is not actually written by Fanon, and the author's preoccupation with an ethnocentric view of Fanon's work is clear, it is a good overview. Fanon's work extends to the majority of the working class today, their "wage-slavery," and struggle with the oppression of the Capitalist class dominating their lives.
Large book, but easy to understand and read.

This book provides a view of the psychiatric work of Frantz Fanon. He introduced some innovations that humanized the treatment of those suffering mental illness. Some of his initiatives were unique during the 50's. Nowadays is the common practice to reduce the hospitalizations; to recruit the social context of the patient; to conduct vocational skill training; and to facilite the reentry to their families and communities.
