Fanon, postcolonialism and the ethics of difference raises a host of crucial questions regarding the relevance of Fanon today: in today’s world, where violence and terror have gone global, what conclusions might we draw from Fanon’s work? Should we keep on blaming Fanon for the colonial violence, which he internalized and struggled against, and overlook the fact that the very Manichaeism that previously governed the economy of colonial societies is now generating violence and terror on a global scale? Has the new humanism which he inaugurates in the concluding section of The Wretched of the Earth turned out to be nothing but a vain plea? What grounds for optimism does he allow us, if any? What is to be salvaged from his ethics and politics in this age of globalization?

Fanon, postcolonialism and the ethics of difference offers a new reading of Fanon’s work, challenging many of the reconstructions of Fanon in critical and postcolonial theory and in cultural studies and probing a host of crucial issues: the intersectionality of gender and colonial politics; the biopolitics of colonialism; Marxism and decolonization; tradition, translation and humanism. Fanon, postcolonialism and the ethics of difference underscores the ethical dimension of Fanon’s work by focusing on his project of decolonization and humanism.

–31. 65 The celebrated notion of ‘sanitation syndrome’ with reference to colonial biopolitical struggles was firstly coined by Maynard Swanson in ‘The sanitation syndrome: bubonic plague and urban native policy in the Cape Colony, 1900–1909’, Journal of American History , 18 (1977), 387–410.

Anti-Cook agitation: Towards a colonial biopolitics Cook's authoritarian and cold style of administration, and his unwillingness to contemplate the survival of Aboriginal communities, had made him anathema to many who fought for a different northern regime. There was no shortage of vitriol, much of it sent south by northern correspondents. The journalist Fred Thompson wrote of the ‘One-Eyed Chief Protector, Dr. C. E. Cook, who has shown himself to be utterly devoid of any feeling of humanity in his dealings with the aboriginals, half-castes and
