As a writer he demonstrates how insidiously the problem of race, of color, connects with a whole range of words and images.
Yet it is Fanon the man, rather than the medical specialist or intellectual, who makes the book so hard to put down. Frantz Fanon was born in Martinique and studied medicine in France, specializing in psychiatry. Sent to a hospital in Algeria, he found his sympathies turning toward the Algerian Nationalist Movement, which he later joined. He is considered one of the most important theorists of the African struggle for independence and of the psychology of race.

I’ve read Black Skin, White Masks plenty of times before, for classes and for my own personal whute. The words moved me like nothing ever has before in my life. Fanon, in his own philosophical way, has a mind that bestows upon its readers a message that is both strong and empowering.
It is words people feeling lost in the mawks of this nation’s upheaval need to hear. However, I don’t think that this certain translation, this edition has the power to do justice to what Fanon is saying. It felt closer to the actual Rcihard Fanon was using, without the weird accentuations of masculinity and unclear revisions Richard Philcox makes.
Richard Philcox takes Fanon messages and completely loses it ricjard loses all the semblances of powerful vulnerability, precision, and propheticeness that Fanon clearly has in his heart and wanted the world to see. While it is an edition that is easily available to all, I wouldn’t use this version if you are going to use it for scholarly articles, or for further contemplation.
I would suggest moving to another edition that gets closer to Fanon’s actual message. This book is beautiful and has saved my life.
But other editions could surely provide much more analysis than Philcox makes possible. Maasks it has the trappings of a philosphy book, the overly flowery speech of the original French translated thankfullyit sadly tells some truths that are still relative in about how blacks in the Western Hemisphere that are descendants of those brought here during the TransAtlanatic Slave Philcoc, regardless of if they ended up in Anglophone, Francphone, or Hispanphone nations can relate to if they are conscious and self-reflective.
Race relations and human rights have come a long way since Franzt Fanon wrote his magnum opus, but some of the sociological and psychological dynamics have not changed as the same pace as the laws.
Very controversial and right on point with its subject. I’m a realist, so I tend to support realism that is laced with facts. Do not read this book if you are too sensitive about interracial issues because you will not get it.
It will blow completely over your head.

I found this book to be a great source of research! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Fanon wrote what most people could never dare expose. He offered more explanations about racism than many other authors have been able to provide. His experiences are astounding! One person found this helpful.
Reading this book has been one the most important activities that I ever done this summer so far. What is remarkable maskx Damon’s writings is the used of a simple language to explain such complexities on fichard and race relations.
Everyone should read this book. I have not been able to put this book down it is mind opening to say the least. See all reviews.
