Frantz Fanon on Bourgeoisie - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 387
Bourgeoisie/Colonialism/Postcolonialism/Fanon: It is this group that, in Fanon's eyes, is responsible for the economic and political misdevelopments that still characterize many post-colonies today - although he conceded that the deplorable state of this "narrow-gauge bourgeoisie" (1), which has not been able to establish a powerful bourgeois society of Western European style, certainly has colonial historical backgrounds. See Elite/Fanon: This class simply wants to take the place of the previous colonial masters.
