Anti-imperialist Analytics since Fanon
This chapter revisits the unique theorization of “violence” that Frantz Fanon articulated in his book, The Wretched of the Earth, as a way of reckoning with contemporary conditions of imperialist globalization. Fanon argues that the totalizing nature of colonial violence must not only be challenged by the absolute violence of decolonization, but such a confrontation also carries with it a political obligation to take sides. For Fanon, the strategic advocacy of anticolonial violence as a response to colonial violence and nationalist consciousness is the only means to internationalism. Fanon’s work serves as a vital foundation for any anti-imperialist analytic circumspect about the reformability of international law and the potential pitfalls of rearticulating dominant forms in a pseudo-revolutionary modality.
