This book is a critical engagement with the ideas of Frantz Fanon, focusing on the politics of identity and resistance. It provides a coherent reading of Fanon's work, highlighting his commitment to revolutionary humanism and sketching a broad outline of his approach to identity politics. The book engages with the challenges of reading Fanon today and stresses on the relevance of his ideas in analysing contemporary politics and culture. It uses Fanonian perspectives to critique the Negritude movement, Periyar's anti-caste movement in Tamil Nadu, the Kurdish struggle in the Middle East, and contemporary multiculturalism, arguing for a politics of ‘expansive identity’ and a new universalism.
