A propos de cet article

Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Written by a leading Fanon scholar, and with an acute philosophical intelligence, Fanonian Practices in South Africa is a sophisticated attempt to examine post-apartheid South Africa through the emancipatory lens of Frantz Fanon s revolutionary humanism. South Africa has been widely heralded as an African success story in the wake of the 1994 democratic elections. But in recent years the world s media have too often carried stark images of South African police attacking protesters or scenes of xenophobic violence. Has post-apartheid South Africa been unable to chart a course away from the all too familiar script of a post-colonial crisis, rooted in the narrow nationalism and neocolonialism that Fanon so vividly described? This is not another meditation on Fanon s continued relevance. Instead, it is an inquiry into how Fanon, the revolutionary, might think and act in the face of contemporary social crises. Taking Fanon s passion for freedom and liberation seriously, and Biko s analysis of the dangers of liberalism, Fanonian Practices looks into the politics of the shack-dweller movements currently gathering momentum in South Africa as important spaces in which to think and construct a truly human post-apartheid future.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Fanonian Practices in South Africa examines Frantz Fanon's relevance to contemporary South African politics, and by extension, research on postcolonial Africa and the tragic development of postcolonies. Here leading Fanon scholar Nigel C. Gibson offers theoretically informed historical analysis, providing crucial scholarly insights into the circumstances that led to the current hegemony of neoliberalism in South Africa.

Critique:

'Gibson's book is another serious piece of work on the state of post-apartheid South African society, which critics of the negotiated settlement that ended apartheid insist remains in the economic inequality that characterised the apartheid era.'-Commonwealth and Comparative Politics 'This is a refreshing and imaginative reading of Frantz Fanon's groundbreaking thoughts regarding the theory and practice of revolutionary transformation. Nigel Gibson has found an exciting voice to re-energise the transformation discourse in post-apartheid South Africa.' - City Press 'Gibson provides an analytical paradigm and a convincing argument that Fanon remains current and compatible with contemporary realities. Recommended.' - CHOICE "The book contains much of considerable theoretical value from one of the world's foremost Fanon scholars."-Psychology in Society
