The writer and editor of the books forgot one fundamental of writing - Do not repeat yourself over and over and over again. This 300 page book contains material worth hardly 70 pages. I wonder, what Penguin was thinking while publishing it.

Frantz Fanon
“I speak of the Christian religion, and no one need be astonished. The Church in the colonies is the white people's Church, the foreigner's Church. She does not call the native to God's ways but to the ways of the white man, of the master, of the oppressor. And as we know, in this matter many are called but few chosen.”
Frantz Fanon, Concerning Violence
