"I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth." First English edition of this landmark book, and after WRETCHED OF THE EARTH arguably Fanon's most important work. BLACK SKIN WHITE MASKS was one of the first books to explore the phychological construction of race and to critique it from an anti-colonial perspective. It would go on to influence the Black Power movement in the US, especially Bobby Seale and Stokely Carmichael of the Black Panthers, but its influence continues to be felt throughout the world other liberation movements ñ from Palestine to Cuba, Native Americans to South Africans. Further, Fanon's discussions of black sexuality in BSWM, and black homosexuality in particular, were instumental in the development of queer theory. Based on his dissertation and originally published in France in 1952, this posthumous Grove Press edition is the first in English (translated by Charles Lam, with a stark, uncredited jacket design by Roy Kuhlman) and is decidedly uncommon, esp. in nice condition. A foundational text.
