Fanon explores the psychological effect of colonisation on the psyche of a nation as well as its broader implications for building a movement for decolonization. He critiques nationalism and imperialism and discusses the role of intellectuals and of language in revolutionary situations. Fanon argues that revolutionary groups should look to non-proletarian strata, especially peasants, to organize against the colonial power.
