Written in anger, this book by a distinguished psychiatrist & leading spokesman of the revolution which won independence for Algeria is no mere diatribe against the white man or the West. It is a brilliant examination of the role of violence in effecting historical change which has served leaders of emerging nations as a veritable handbook of revolutionary practice & social reorganization. From back cover.
Written in French 1961. Translated by Constance Farrington
