Focusing on the contributions of Frantz Fanon's writing to the construction of a theory of the postcolonial subject, this book engages post-structuralist discussions on subjectivity and explores the most important readings and discussions of Fanon's work. Problems such as historicity, contingency, and the positions of the subject in postcolonial contexts receive special attention together with phenomenological approaches to Fanonian writing. The central idea is to give Fanon a privileged place in social, political, and cultural analysis.

The objectives of the book are to insert Fanon’s texts in contemporary critical theory on modernity and coloniality and to incorporate Fanon in the epistemological and conceptual context of the academy. This innovative work allows us to understand Fanon’s writing as key to linking the experiences and critical developments between the global south and the global north.

Alejandro De Oto’s Frantz Fanon: The Politics and Poetics of the Postcolonial Subject played (and continues to play) an important role in presenting the case for the importance of Fanon’s ideas for decolonial thought in Latin America in the first decade of the twenty-first century. Winner of the 2005 Frantz Fanon Outstanding Book Award, it is here offered in English translation through the fastidious work of Karina Alma, which is, in its own right, a contribution to shifting the geography of reason.

— Lewis R. Gordon, author of What Fanon Said
