Journal Article — Midnight Reﬂections on Some of the Work of Frantz Fanon — by Irene L. Gendzier
This article emphasizes the continuing importance of Fanon’s analysis of ‘the pitfalls of national consciousness.’ Other considerations, such as the potential role of oil that appeared in el Moudjahid (1958) and that had a bearing on the development of Algeria and the Maghreb, are briefly touched upon. Their long term positive as well as negative impact is a matter of contemporary debate that is not considered in this essay.
