FANON, Frantz (text); SARTRE, Jean-Paul (preface); FARRINGTON, Constance (translation)
The Wretched of the Earth
London: MacGibbon & Kee, 1965. First U.K. Edition. Hardcover. The French West Indian political philosopher's third book and most enduring work, first published in Paris as Les Damnes de la Terre (1961). "Fanon demonstrates how violence in the colonized countries in the Cold War World reflects the violent relations that develop between capitalism and socialism, and shows how violence affords a colonial people its first sense of community. This, his most famous manifest, was written against the background of his Algerian and African experience. He stated that 'he wrote not for Europe but for the Third World'" (BLOCKSON 92, pp.66-67). A deeply significant post-colonial text, equal in influece to Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung and The Autobiography of Malcolm X among radicals and Third World militants. First Impression. Octavo (20.75cm); black paper-covered boards, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; dustjacket; [6],7-255,[1]pp. Crown gently nudged, small vintage booksellers label to front pastedown, with subtle offsetting to pastedowns and endpapers, else clean throughout; Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced 36s net), gently spine-sunned, with some modest shelfwear; Very Good+.
