Sub titel: A Portarit
Frantz Fanon is a Martinique-born French author and essayist. He was perhaps the preeminent thinker of the 20th century on the issue of decolonization and the psychopathology of colonization. His works have inspired anti-colonial liberation movements for more than four decades. Cherki offers a unique assessment of Fanon's complex personality, illuminating both his psychiatric practice - of which she says, "Fanon possessed a tremendous intuition about the unconscious and a great erudition in psychoanalytic theory" - and the sources of his political activism, of his intellectual career as a pivot of the quickly changing world.
