Unique from his contemporaries, Frantz Fanon examined the dangers of post-colonial power. His monumental contribution was posing questions and explaining the 'curse' which national liberation would become for the developing world. Voices of Liberation: Frantz Fanon gives insight into the extraordinary thought and ideas of the man hailed as the 20th century's most important revolutionary. The book includes a gripping view on his life, the period he lived in and a selection of his work; also interviews with those who fought with him in the struggle against French colonialism in Algeria and Tunisia. Fanon's daughter, Mireille Fanon, has written the foreword to Voices of Liberations: Frantz Fanon, where she explains the continued importance of her father's writings and politics. Dan Watts, editor of the radical newspaper Liberator, in 1967 described Fanon's influence on the revolt of black America:"You're going along thinking all the brothers in these riots are old winos. Nothing could be further from the truth. These cats are ready to die for something. And they know why. The all read. read a lot. Not one of them hasn't read the Bible...Fanon...You'd better get this book. Every brother on a rooftop can quote Fanon."The Voices of Liberation series celebrats the lives and writings of African Liberation activists and heroes. By providing access to the thoughts and writings of some of the many men and women who fought for the dismantling of apartheid, this series invites the contemporary reader to engage directly with the rich history of the struggle for democracy, to discover where we come from and to explore how we, too, can choose to shape our destiny.

About the Author:

Leo Zeilig is Visiting Researcher at University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. He was previously a senior researcher at the Centre for Sociological Research at the University of Johannesburg and holds a PhD from Brunel University.

Review:

'A thought provoking book that represents a new interpretation of Frantz Fanon, key thinker of the Third World anti-colonial revolution that transformed the twentieth century.' (Martin Evans, Professor of Modern European History, University of Sussex 2015-11-10)

‘Leo Zeilig's remarkable book about a remarkable scholar-activist, Fanon, has come at a crucial and critical moment. In it he tells the story of the man, his ideas and the milieu wherein he practiced ‘being Fanon', that is, being argumentative, fearless, revolutionary and totally committed. This book is a subtle and sympathetic engagement with Fanon's life project: decolonisation and the plight of the national liberation movement in Africa; he was its shining lodestar and exhibited some of its glaring mistakes. Everyone concerned with the human emancipation project must read this book.' (Trevor Ngwane, Research Chair for Social Change, University of Johannesburg 2015-11-10)

'Leo Zeilig identifies Frantz Fanon as the most important figure in the ideological struggle against colonialism in the Twentieth Century, arguing that his critical engagement with Marxism enabled him to go far beyond that project. He was a brilliant champion of national liberation, yet he turned into its most devastating critic. In this captivating and passionate biography, Zeilig argues that while Fanon's legacy is ambiguous, its emancipatory message demands our continuing attention if we are to challenge the continuing oppressions and inequalities of global capitalism. This book is a magnificent addition to the already hugely impressive corpus of work on Fanon's philosophy and politics.' (Roger Southall, Professor Emeritus, Department of Sociology, University of the Witwatersrand. 2015-11-10)

‘Zeilig has a long history of work on class struggles in Africa and his detailed knowledge of these struggles helps to locate Fanon’s life and work’

(Shane Hopkinson, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books)

"absolutely worth reading" (Africa is a Country 2017-12-06)
