Summary
This book focuses on a reading of Frantz Fanon{u2019}s work and life, asking how the work of a revolutionary writer such as Fanon might be best appropriated for contemporary political and cultural issues. Separate chapters introduce Fanon{u2019}s life and examine the question of Fanon as our contemporary; review the field of 2Fanon studies3 that has grown up around his work; bring Fanon into conversation with the critical contemporary figures Edward Said, Michel Foucault, Jamaica Kincaid, and Paul Gilroy; and turn to Fanon{u2019}s work to think through the contemporary popular uprisings that have come to be known as the 2Arab Spring.3 The book concludes by arguing that a reevaluation of Fanon{u2019}s life and work can provide us with a particular set of lessons about solidarity{u2014}lessons that are crucial for the contemporary political struggles that face us today and that will continue to confront us in the future. Finding Something Different: Frantz Fanon and the Future of Cultural Politics is inspired by Fanon{u2019}s unsparing struggle against the depredations of racism and colonialism, and his lifelong commitment to finding something different. --Provided by publisher
