From the Publisher:
Audacious, provocative, and bombastic, few world politicians are as colorful as Hugo Chávez, now making international news for his plans to nationalize U.S. owned businesses and his bold opposition to Washington's economic and trade policies.  As Venezuela gains importance as the fifth largest oil exporter in the world, this firebrand leader is quickly moving to the public spotlight by uniting much of South America against the Bush administration and wielding oil as a "geopolitical weapon." To create this rich and objective portrait, Nikolas Kozloff--one of the few American journalists who has spent years in the Andean region--has profiled Chávez's  top advisors, leaders of his movement, and other key figures in both Venezuela and the U.S. The result is a timely, exhaustive analysis of Chávez as a political leader, and a nuanced examination of the president moving to the center of the global stage. Includes a new afterword by the author, with insights into Chávez's reelection in relation to wider hemispheric politics.
Annotation:
This generally favorable study of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela examines the changes that he has brought to his country through his "Bolivarian revolution," as well as the outspoken leadership role he has assumed in the region. Chavez believes that oil--which his country has plenty of--can be a strategic tool of political change , and Nikolas Kozloff explains the thinking behind Chavez's policies, as well as his strong distaste for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as well George W. Bush, whom Chavez blames for a coup that almost ousted him from power. Kozloff discusses the prospects for U.S-Latin American relations as other countries align themselves with Chavez.

Praise

"[Kozloff] offers little criticism of Chavez's policies or the nondemocratic means...through which he first garnered public favor....But while this bias may make for a one-sided storytelling at times, it also makes for a thoughtful, well-researched alternative to the majority of information available on Chavez in the English-speaking world." 07/24/2006
