The Wretched of the Earth (1961) Frantz Fanon 

66933Classic clear language vivid portrayal of what lies at the twisted heart of the colonizer-colonized relationship and the dynamic– violent– severance of the bond. Decolonization, Revolution, other words for what followed. By 1961 Fanon could already see the direction toward weak ineffective corrupt governance by class, ethnicity or other difference who were marked by colonizers as the legitimate heirs. , and the continued hand and fist of the former powers. Horrifying truths. Eager to read biography of Fanon now.
