Aug 15, Tony el Oso rated it liked it. Educative good, but a very dry read. Feb 27, Zachery rated it really liked it. The only thing I disliked about the book was that it seemed like it was written as an essay for a standardized test like the GRE or MCAT - lots of cent words and overly descriptive adjectives. Jul 19, Ro rated it really liked it.
An extremely well-written and fawning account of Hugo Chavez and his rise to power in Venezuela. This is a mostly a work of journalism, with a lot of winding first-person narratives and observations and anecdotes, interspersed with dives into history, so don't expect any citations; on the flip side, this makes this a very colorful and enjoyable and easy read. Especially interesting was the discussion of the political situation of the s, and what Chavez and other leftists were up to, which a An extremely well-written and fawning account of Hugo Chavez and his rise to power in Venezuela.
Especially interesting was the discussion of the political situation of the s, and what Chavez and other leftists were up to, which a lot of accounts of Chavez and Venezuela seem to gloss over. However, it is worth noting that this is basically a pro-Chavez polemic; the author cannot find a bad word to say about him, and is close to uncritical about him and his program and politics, and relentlessly dismissive about the Venezuelan opposition.
This is actually fairly persuasive in the bulk of the book, which is about the lead-up to his electoral victory, since it contains a lot of information and analysis. But in this updated version, the writing on the first few years of the Chavez administration and his wranglings with the opposition read much more thin.
Nov 11, C. Quabela rated it liked it Shelves: leftist. This book does a fine job of describing the philosophy and achievements of the Bolivarian Revolution. However, the author has a tendency to dismiss many of the virtues of Chavez and the Venezuelan people with flippant rhetoric. Despite denouncing the racism of the elite against the poor in Latin America, there are stereotypes that are perpetuated without much regard, Chavez is often painted as a demagogue and his "rhetoric" passed off as almost charlatanism, despite the fact that his words are This book does a fine job of describing the philosophy and achievements of the Bolivarian Revolution.
Despite denouncing the racism of the elite against the poor in Latin America, there are stereotypes that are perpetuated without much regard, Chavez is often painted as a demagogue and his "rhetoric" passed off as almost charlatanism, despite the fact that his words are backed up throughout the work with achievements and integrity. Jul 23, Hazim Khan rated it really liked it. Great read, well-written overview of Chavez and a good overview if visiting Venezuela. Only problem is it needs an update for the current political catastrophe that is happening in Venezuela.
Will there be an updated or new version discussing his legacy in the context of current climate? Aug 13, Goodwin Lucknow rated it liked it.
Interesting look into how the man came to power. Oct 05, Derek Ide rated it it was amazing. If you regularly find yourself regurgitating state department propaganda about Chavez, this is your corrective, 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 in , before 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. I read another book about Hugo Chavez last week and it was incredibly biased.
Thousands march in Caracas in support of Bolivarian Revolution, Maduro
It makes me sad to know that the great Bolivarian leader Hugo Chavez is not longer alive but his legacy will never die and he will live in the hearts of millions and millions of poor people of Venezuela and around the world. Hugo Chavez, a dictator according to USA because Chavez never worked for the wishes of the yankee imperialism isn't a very An amazing book details the post and preview of the Bolivarian revolution. Hugo Chavez, a dictator according to USA because Chavez never worked for the wishes of the yankee imperialism isn't a very complicated man.
Chavez from the very first day declared himself to be the president of poor. Rich people of in Venezuela hate Chavez because of his worked for the poor,lower socioeconomic and indigenous people. Hugo Chavez is a champion of human rights, a champion of gay rights, a champion of indigenous people, a champion of liberty, a champion of freedom, a champion of revolution.
