Who Owns Frantz Fanon's Legacy?

Abu-Manneh, Bashir (2021) Who Owns Frantz Fanon's Legacy? Catalyst: Journal of Theory and Strategy, 5 (1). pp. 10-39. E-ISSN 2475-7365. (KAR id:87708)


The Wretched of the Earth is Fanon’s most radical and influential book: it expresses the contradictions and revolutionary possibilities of the whole conjuncture of decolonisation. Yet it has been marred by a postcolonial reception that is blind to Fanon’s socialism and class analysis, and turns Fanon into a prophet of violence – while ignoring the real theoretical deficiencies of his work.
