2010 is the 100th anniversary of Jean Genet's birth. The final decades (1968-1986) of his life were preoccupied with the struggles of the disenfranchised: the Black Panthers (an African-American revolutionary left-wing organisation working for the self-defence for black people), Baader-Meinhoff (a German communist and anti-imperialist 'urban guerrilla' group) and the Palestinians. Laroche provides a careful philosophical and historical reading of these groups and Genet's relation to them.
