Xdyj's books

I'm a Chinese student studying in the U. S.. I like reading and talking about books I like or dislike.
Please add me as a friend if you want to.

The Wretched of the Earth - Frantz Fanon, Richard Philcox, Homi K. Bhabha, Jean-Paul Sartre A Marxist analysis on colonialism & its effect as well as decolonization process & pitfalls to avoid. I'm not sure if it is influenced by Maoism to some extend. IMHO some things are easier said than done, as half a century after the publication of this book the FLN & most other third-world socialist movements have failed to live up to their promises. Also, while the militant, revolutionary FLN has run their country to the ground, the largely pacifist, fabianist INC is leading an emerging superpower.
