Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


This is the riveting and frightening story of ambitious, tempestuous and avowed anti-American Hugo Chavez, who is making waves through South America and being widely compared to Fidel Castro. Ex-paratrooper, outspoken socialist, and brash personality, Chavez is known for his stance against big business, fearless threats to the Bush administration, social reforms that have violently polarized his country, and claims that he will soon unite South America. As gas prices rise to unprecedented highs, Venezuela's importance surges as the fifth largest oil exporter in the world. Nikolas Kozloff's access to top advisors, members of the opposition, and leaders of Chavez's own political movement allow him to present a comprehensive portrait of Chavez as he runs for re-election and moves into the global spotlight."
