Zusatztext Here are collected two plays never published before, written when he was a medical student; scientific papers reminded us of his career as a psychiatrist; newly discovered pieces he wrote, often anonymously in El Moudjahid, the organ of the National Liberation Front that led Algeria to independence. But this volume is certainly not a collection of disparate additional pieces from an author whose oeuvre is already complete. On the contrary this book by Frantz Fanon forms a unity: like the rest of the works by the author of the Wretched of the Earth it tells in a unique way the story of the emancipation of the human being from everything that alienates her, everything that separates her from her humanity. Thus it sheds a new light on Frantz Fanon. Informationen zum Autor Frantz Fanon (1925-1961) was a Martinique-born psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and writer. He was the author of classic works such as Black Skin, White Masks (1952) and The Wretched of the Earth (1961). He was one of the most significant anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist and anti-racist thinkers of the 20th Century. Jean Khalfa is a Senior Lecturer in French Studies at Trinity College Cambridge, UK. He is the editor of the first complete edition of Michel Foucault's History of Madness (2006) and author of Poetics of the Antilles ( 2016) and an upcoming work on Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth . Robert J. C. Young, FBA, is Julius Silver Professor of English and Comparative Literature at New York University, USA. He is the author of White Mythologies (1990), Colonial Desire (1995), Postcolonialism: An Historical Introduction (2001), The Idea of English Ethnicity (2008), Empire, Colony, Postcolony (2015). Steven Corcoran is a writer and translator living in Berlin. He has edited and translated several works by Jacques Rancière, including Dissensus (2015) and The Lost Thread (2016). Klappentext Never before published in English! Alienation and Freedom is a rare opportunity to read the last writings of a major 20th-century philosopher! whose disruptive and moving work continues to shape how we look at the world.Frantz Fanon is regarded as a foundational thinker of Postcolonial Studies! bringing together the analysis of colonialism from an objective! historical perspective and an interrogation of its subjective effects on colonizer and colonized alike. This book furthers his powerful intervention into how we think about identity! race and activism and provides a unique insight into Fanon's literary! psychiatric and journalistic theories. Vorwort The first English translation of Alienation and Freedom , the only remaining unpublished works by major 20th-century writer Frantz Fanon Zusammenfassung Since the publication of The Wretched of the Earth in 1961, Fanon’s work has been deeply significant for generations of intellectuals and activists from the 60s to the present day. Alienation and Freedom collects together unpublished works comprising around half of his entire output – which were previously inaccessible or thought to be lost. This book introduces audiences to a new Fanon, a more personal Fanon and one whose literary and psychiatric works, in particular, take centre stage. These writings provide new depth and complexity to our understanding of Fanon’s entire oeuvre revealing more of his powerful thinking about identity, race and activism which remain remarkably prescient. Shedding new light on the work of a major 20th-century philosopher, this disruptive and moving work will shape how we look at the world.
