Review-A-Day

"Fringe as Ali's views may be, they do provide a warning. And warnings, in a world as unstable as ours, deserve a second look. If we are headed toward a world increasingly indifferent to U.S. concerns, now may be the right moment to move beyond our assumptions and begin asking a few questions of our own." Alan Wise, Esquire (read the entire Esquire review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A revolution is moving across Latin America...

Since 1998, the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela has brought Hugo Chávez to world attention as the foremost challenger of the neoliberal consensus and American foreign policy. While Chávez's radical social-democratic reforms have brought him worldwide acclaim among the poor, he has attracted intense hostility from Venezuelan elites and Western governments.

Drawing on first-hand experience of Venezuela and meetings with Chávez, Tariq Ali shows how Chávez's views have polarized Latin America and examines the hostility directed against his administration. Ali discusses the enormous influence of Fidel Castro on both Chávez and Evo Morales, the newly-elected President of Bolivia, and contrasts the Cuban and Venezuelan revolutionary processes. Infused with references to the culture and poetry of South America, Pirates of the Caribbean guides us through a world divided between privilege and poverty, a continent that is once again on the march.

Book News Annotation:

Veteran anti-imperialist writer and activist Ali (New Left Review) approvingly turns his eye on Latin America as it slips out from under the neoliberal yoke and the paternal tutelage of the United States. He focuses on the vilified figure of Venezuelan President Hugo Chvez, offering an account of his rise to political power, the failed coup of attempt of 1992, other Venezuelan elite and US efforts to oppose Chvez's Bolivarian Revolution, and the policies carried out by Chvez and his political allies. He also discusses the influence of Cuban leader Fidel Castro on the political trajectory of Chvez and discusses the anti-neoliberal uprisings in Bolivia, which paved the way for the election of another leftist, Evo Morales, to the presidency in that country. Also included in the volume are interviews with some of the protagonists discussed and the texts of Hugo Chvez's address to the 2005 United Nations and 2003 Evo Morales' speech to the "In Defense of Humanity" forum in Mexico City.
