Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only first-hand report on contemporary Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, by veteran correspondent Richard Gott, places the country's controversial and charismatic president in historical perspective, and examines his plans and programs. This new edition has a chapter on the attempted and failed military coup, Venezuela's recent recall election, and discusses US covert intervention against this democratically elected public official.

The spectre of Simon Bolivar hovers once again over Latin America as the aims and ambitions of the Liberator are taken up by Comandante Hugo Chavez. Welcomed by the inhabitants of the teeming shantytowns of Caracas as their potential savior, and greeted by Washington with considerable alarm, this former golpista-turned-democrat has already begun the most wide-ranging transformation of oil-rich Venezuela for half a century, and dramatically affected the political debate throughout Latin America.

Book News Annotation:

Gott (a former Latin America editor for the British newspaper The Guardian) presents a sympathetic portrait of the Venezuelan president and his political program. He explores Chavez's early biography, examines Venezuela's recent political history leading up to the election of Chavez, analyzes the ideological roots of Chavez's "Bolivarian Revolution," and discusses Chavez's efforts to steer an independent foreign policy and develop an economic policy that uses Venezuela's great oil wealth to the benefit of the country's poor majority. For this new edition, he has added material on the failed US-supported military coup of 2002, the recent recall election, and US covert intervention against the democratically elected Chavez.
