Summary note
"Frantz Fanon was a psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary and writer whose hugely influential books--including Black skin, white masks--have informed a wide range of studies, and inspired revolutionary movements from Palestine to Sri Lanka and South Africa. Frantz Fanon: philosopher of the barricades is a critical biography of his extraordinary life and work. Peter Hudis draws on his entire story--from his upbringing in Martinique to his mature efforts to fuse psychoanalysis with philosophy--to show that Fanon's writing speaks directly to today's struggles against racism and alienation." -- Back cover.
