Read With Shred 8: Chavez

Chávez: Venezuela and the New Latin America; Aleida Guevara, Hugo Chávez, David Deustchmann (editor); 200 pgs⁠


A good toe-dip into Venezuelan politics from the standpoint of The Comandante himself, Hugo Chávez. Chávez talks to the eldest daughter of Che Guevara about his program, a bit of his history, and his participation in the vision of twenty-first century socialism. The book also includes a harrowing account of the coup against Chávez in 2002, written from the perspective of one of the generals who worked quickly to stop the Carmona government from solidifying their power grab.⁠
