BOOK EXCERPT:

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 Alienation and Freedom collects together unpublished works comprising around half of his entire output – which were previously inaccessible or thought to be lost.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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Prior to becoming a psychiatrist, Frantz Fanon wanted to be a playwright and his interest in dialogue, dramatisation and metaphor continued throughout his writing and career. His passion for theatre developed during the years that he was studying medicine, and in 1949 he wrote the plays The Drowning Eye (L'Œil se noie), and Parallel Hands (Les Mains parallèles). This first English translation of the works gives us a Fanon at his most lyrical, experimental and provocative.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Frantz Fanon's psychiatric career was crucial to his thinking as an anti-colonialist writer and activist. Much of his iconic work was shaped by his experiences working in hospitals in France, Algeria and Tunisia. The writing collected here was written from 1951 to 1960 in tandem with his political work and reveals much about how Fanon's thought developed, showing that, for him, psychiatry was part of a much wider socio-political struggle. His political, revolutionary and literary lives should not then be separated from the psychiatric practice and writings that shaped his thinking about oppression, alienation and the search for freedom.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Frantz Fanon's political impact is difficult to overestimate. His anti-colonialist, philosophical and revolutionary writings were among the most influential of the 20th century. The essays, articles and notes published in this volume cover the most politically active period of his life and encapsulate the breadth, depth and urgency of his writings. In particular, they clarify and amplify his much-debated views on violent resistance. These works provide new complexity to our understanding of Fanon and reveal just how relevant his thinking is to the contemporary world and how important his ideas are to changing it.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Drawing from existentialism, feminism, the thought of Karl Marx and novelists like Dostoevsky, Richard Schmitt looks at modern capitalist societies to understand what it is that might be wrong for individuals. His concern focuses specifically on those who are alienated-- those persons who have difficulty finding meaning in their lives, who lack confidence in themselves and trust in others and, finally, who are constantly distracted by consumer society. He explores how and why alienation occurs. From friendship, love, and work, Alienation and Freedom touches on issues meaningful to us all.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Interest in the study of Marx’s thought has shown a revival in recent years, with a number of newly established academic societies, conferences, and journals dedicated to discussing his thought. This book brings together distinguished and up-and-coming scholars to provide a major re-evaluation of historical issues in Marx scholarship and to connect Marx’s ideas with fresh debates in contemporary Anglo-American social and political philosophy. Among the topics discussed are Marx’s relationship to his philosophical predecessors—including Hegel, the young Hegelians, and the utopian socialists—his concept of recognition, his critique of liberalism, and his views on the good life. This book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students interested in Marx, Hegel, the history of political thought, and social and political philosophy.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Arabic Prison Literature: Resistance, Torture, Alienation, and Freedom introduces prison literature through the prism of works written by Arab authors in the second half of the twentieth century. Geula Elimelekh's unique approach largely eschews the socio-political-historical review of this subgenre of Arabic political literature. Instead, she delves deeply and humanely into a psychological, critical literary, and existentialist-philosophical analysis of the authors and characters whose lives are scarred and ruined by prisons and torment. This book holds nothing back of the atrocities and horrors that authors like 'Abd al-Rahman Munif in East of the Mediterranean, Sun'Allah 'Ibrahim in That Smell, Sharif Hatatah in The Eye with the Metal Eyelid, and Nabil Sulayman in The Prison sought to bring to the attention of the Arab public and the world. What happens within the confines of the political prison and to the families of the prisoners and torturers is exposed in this literature through a combination of human episodes described with artistic sensitivity of the highest calibre. This body of literature is doubly important, because on the one hand it demands a re-examination of the Arab culture and mind-set that fosters brutal, patriarchal, self-serving regimes that crush freedom and human rights, while on the other it accurately exposes the inhuman conditions of daily life in prison. It is precisely at this time - during the on-going "Arab spring" - when the historical rhythms of earlier revolutions and uprisings appear to be repeating themselves that the paradoxical duality of prison literature again calls out for the long overdue retrospective found between these covers.
