Los condenados de la tierra by Frantz Fanon (1 star ratings)
Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth seems like one rambling assertion after another. Ostensibly Fanon is speaking from his professional experience as a psychiatrist on the psychological effects of colonialism. That is apparent in the final section of the book, where he discusses actual case studies. But for the majority of the book that covers the logic of colonialism and anticolonial revolution, there is little in the way of argument.
It’s also difficult to tell when he’s engaging in prescription ver Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth seems like one rambling assertion after another. It’s also difficult to tell when he’s engaging in prescription versus mere description. Fanon is especially disappointing in how much he essentializes the colonial subject.
For the most part he ignores the possibility of dissident views within the colonial community. There is no discussion of how women, for example, might have specific concerns about revolution.

Likewise for ethnic minorities, who may face very different sets of trade-offs concerning revolution against a colonial power, and who may have reason to fear the kind of nationalism that Fanon espouses. A counterexample of dissident views is of course the bourgeois, whom Fanon discusses at length, but only to argue that they should be crushed. Indeed Fanon’s facility with violence is rightly the most famous element of this work. The rejoinder, that the colonial powers have always been free and loose with violence themselves, rings true.
And yet Fanon expends no concern that revolutionary violence can sometimes lead to outcomes even worse than the status quo. My distaste for this book goes beyond what I can even begin to describe.
Most difficult book I’ve ever read. Fanon is a human dictionary. Struggled very hard to read this book and I must say though it has some important views on colonialism, decolonization and the relationships that exist, it felt repetitive.
Los Condenados de la Tierra : Frantz Fanon :
Los panfletos marxistas por lo general son divertido, sea porque uno aprenda alguna que otra cosa de ellos, sea porque resulte divertido observar las falacias en las que caen. The preface by Jean-Paul Frak is worth reading, though it is even more bombastic than Fanon’s prose: I wouldn’t call this one a page turner.
