Evo Morales: The Extraordinary Rise of the First Indigenous President of Bolivia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fascinating Bolivian president Evo Morales is vying with the brash and provocative leader of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, to be the most influential figure in South American politics today. Since coming into office four years ago, Morales has been intensely critical of the United States, speaking out against the drug war at the United Nations and implementing socialist programs at home, including the nationalization of British Petroleum holdings and other foreign investments. And he has reached out to Americas political enemies, including Cuba and Iran.

Based on personal interviews and unprecedented access, Sivak traces the rise of Morales from his humble origins in a family of migrant workers to his youth as union organizer and explosion onto the national stage.

About the Author

Martín Sivak is one of Argentinas top journalists. He currently lives in NYC, reporting as a foreign correspondent for the Argentine newspaper, Critica. While in South America he was granted unprecedented access to Morales, accompanying him for weeks as he traveled to all corners of Bolivia, and the world.
