Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

and#160; An intimate encounter between the charismatic Venezuelan President Hugo Chandaacute;vez and Che Guevaraandrsquo;s daughter Aleida

and#160;

Is Venezuela the new Cuba? Elected by an overwhelming popular mandate in 1998, which has been reaffirmed in elections several times since, Hugo Chandaacute;vez isand#160;one of Latin Americaandrsquo;s most outspoken political leaders today.

and#160;

In this extraordinary encounter, Chandaacute;vez is interviewed by Aleida Guevara, the daughter of the legendary revolutionary Che Guevara. He expresses a fiercely nationalist vision for Venezuela and a commitment to a united Latin America. He also discusses the significance of the military coup against his government in April 2002, Venezuelaandrsquo;s new democratic constitution, the extensive social programs undertaken as part of the Bolivarian revolution and assesses his countryandrsquo;s relations with the United States and Cuba.

and#160;

In what became a remarkably intimate dialogue over several days, Chandaacute;vez is probed about his personal political formation and his views about the legacy of Che Guevaraandrsquo;s ideas and example in Latin America today.

and#160;

Included as an appendix is an exclusive interview with Venezuelaandrsquo;s former minister of defense Jorge Garcandiacute;a Carneiro, who played a key role in defeating the 2002 coup against Chandaacute;vez.

andldquo;There is a different Venezuela where the wretched of the earth know that they can free themselves from their past. And this is a different Latin America.andrdquo; andmdash; Hugo Chandaacute;vez

and#160;

and#160;

and#160;

Aleida Guevara is the eldest daughter of Ernesto Che Guevara and Aleida March. She works as a pediatrician in Havana, Cuba, and is a prominent figure in the anti-globalization movement.

and#160;

THIS INTERVIEW IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON DVD.

Book News Annotation:

The daughter of legendary Che Guevara, herself prominent in the anti-globalization movement, interviews the dynamic president of Venezuela, whose Bolivarian Revolution raises hopes throughout Latin America and hackles in North American halls of power. The first section looks at the status and trends in Venezuela today. The second explores such matters as the coup d'tat, family memories, relations with Fidel, and the war in Iraq. The interview was conducted in February 2004, as part of a documentary film project. There is no index. Distributed in the US by Consortium Book Sales and Distribution.
