  • Gandhi And Fanon: A Comparative Analysis

One if them is a guru of India, leading people to peace and unionship; the other is a psychiatrist working in Algeria, seeing the condition of Algerian people under the French control. Having experienced authentic colonialism during their years of service in an developing or underdeveloped country, they both have feelings to express regarding the oppression enforced by a European country onto a country in Asia or Africa.
