The Wretched of the Earth

 

The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and the path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world.

"Have the courage to read this book." --Jean-Paul Sartre
