About the Book
We will fight for Venezuela, for Latin American integration and the world. We affirm our infinite faith in humankind. We are thirsty for peace and justice to survive as a species … Now is the time to not allow our hands to be idle or our souls to rest until we save humanity. “Hugo Chavez. A revolution is moving across Latin America. Since 1998, the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela has brought Hugo Chavez to world attention as the foremost challenger of the neoliberal consensus and American foreign policy. While Chavez radical social-democratic reforms have brought him worldwide acclaim among the poor, he has attracted intense hostility from Venezuela elites and Western government. Drawing on first hand experience of Venezuela and meetings with Chavez, and Evo Morales, the newly elected President of Bolivia, and reflecting on recent trip to Havana, contrasts the Cuban and Venezuelan revolutionary processes.
