Book of the Month: Wretched of the Earth pdf

Fellow Young African Pioneers, This month’s book by Fanon, is highly recommended for acute understanding of the neo-colonial and bourgeois nature of contemporary politics in the post-colonial Africa. He reveals that it is only through viewing history from the perspective of the colonized that their current plight can be understood. This book is a gateway to the knowledge of how contemporary African politics came to be, how it is shaped and structured to serve the interest of a microscopic few (the bourgeois and the ex colonizers) at the expense of the majority (the masses) whose interest are perceptually taken for granted and never addressed. It is important this book is carefully studied in order to be able to extract the important messages and lessons contain within.
