Frantz Fanon was one of the great figures of mid-century revolt in the Third World. Born in Martinique, Fanon trained as a psychiatrist in France prior to taking a post in colonial Algeria. Here he met with the Front de Liberation National which was fighting a bitter war of independence. He subsequently worked with them as a propagandist and ambassador. Although he died from leukaemia at the age of 36, he managed to produce a number of memorable writings on race, racism, psychiatry and anti-colonialism. This biography aims to go beyond the myths surrounding the revolutionary hero to reveal Fanon as a complex figure, above and beyond the theorist of 1960s anti-colonial violence.
