Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This "revised" biography of Franz Fanon (first published in 1973) is a welcome event for those who either missed feeling the impact of his work in the turbulent 1960s and 1970s or were so blinded by the period's turmoil that Fanon's life and work could not be critically evaluated. Grove Press must be congratulated for re-issuing Gendzier's study, particularly since the political fervor for radical political action has passed (for now) and little profit can be expected from this book. In this day of corporate mergers and greed, a commitment to publish what is in the public interest is meritorious.
