If you regularly find yourself regurgitating state department propaganda about Chavez, this is your revollution, the antidote to your poison and God bless the revoking of RCTV, and the curtailing of other virulently right wing corporate hegemons. There are more sophisticated accounts of Chavez, more deeply theoretical, etc.
The accomplishments of Chavez in 12 years this book ends inbefore his death and before Maduro are astonishing. Maduro now faces a difficult situation of continuing the Bolivarian process without Chavez, and God knows he’s been tested.
It’s especially pertinent with the upcoming elections in Venezuela in December. An amazing book details the post and preview of the Bolivarian revolution.

What is going on in Venezuela today is deeply important and should not be passed off ricahrd. Sep 17, Daniele Bassi rated it really liked it. Gott gives an unbiased insight of Chaves which is essential to understand the current situation of Venezuela. Being a foreign correspondent in the region for several years, she clearly explain how Chaves reached the power and where he got all wrong.
There have been many cases of democratic saviors such as Lula or Chaves in Latin American who, after centuries of neglect by the ruling elite, would finally address the overwhelming poverty.
As Gott bolifarian in this book, ignoring the middle class and a Gott gives an unbiased insight of Chaves which is essential to understand richrad current situation of Venezuela. As Gott shows in this book, ignoring the middle class and allowing urban criminality take over have been richar unforgivable mistakes.
I would recommend the book even for those who are not keen on Chaves. Nov 02, Brian rated it did not like it Shelves: This book provides one of the few looks that we revoolution of Hugo Chavez. His dictatorship in Venezuela is one of the more unique in the world especially when analyzing his power base. A word of caution when reading this book however is that Gott is fiercely anti-American so a lot of the book is taken up with his rabid viewpoints.
It is still one of the best portraits we have of Chavez and if you can look past bott anti-American bias the book is very useful. If you want to learn about modern Venezuela This book provides one of the few looks that we have of Hugo Chavez. If you want to learn about modern Venezuela you really can’t go wrong with this book.
