Understanding the Venezuelan Revolution

Understanding the Venezuelan Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marta Harnecker's interviews with Hugo Chavez began soon after one of the most dramatic moments of Chavez's presidency—the failed coup of April 2002, which ended with Chavez restored to power by a massive popular movement of protest and resistance. In the aftermath of the failed coup, Chavez talks to Harnecker about the formation of his political ideas, his aspirations for Venezuela, its domestic and international policies, problems of political organization, relations with social movements in other countries, and more, constantly relating these to concrete events and to strategies for change.

The exchange between Harnecker and Chavez—sometimes reflective, sometimes anecdotal, always characterized by their passionate commitment to the struggles of the oppressed—brings to light the process of thought and action behind the public pronouncements and policies of state.

The interviews are supplemented by extracts from Chavezs most recent pronouncements on the ongoing transformation in Venezuela and Latin America, an analysis by Harnecker of the role of the military, and a chronology.

Chavez has become a symbol of defiance of U.S. imperialism throughout Latin America. His importance for the future of the region makes this book essential reading.

Book News Annotation:

Since assuming the Venezuelan presidency, Hugo Chávez has weathered a failed coup, economic sabotage, and other efforts to destabilize his presidency. Through it all, he has worked to steer Venezuela through a revolutionary process of Bolivarianism that is distorted by his right-wing critics and not particularly well understood by much of the left. In this series of in-depth interviews with Harnecker (Center for Research on Popular Memory in Latin America in Havana, Cuba), Chávez lays out his vision of the Bolivarian Revolution, touching upon topics of the role of the military in politics, his approach to foreign policy, the challenges of finding alternatives to neoliberal economic arrangements, his critics in the middle class and the media, party politics, and the failed coup.
