9780674061385: The Revolution in Venezuela: Social and Political Change under Chávez (Series on Latin American Studies)

Is Venezuela’s Bolivarian revolution under Hugo Chávez truly revolutionary? Some see the president as a shining knight of socialism, while others see him as an avenging Stalinist strongman. But the Chávez government does not fall easily into a seamless fable of emancipatory or authoritarian history, as these distinguished essays make clear.

About the Author:

Thomas Ponniah is Lecturer and Assistant Director of Studies in the Committee on Degrees in Social Studies, and Faculty Associate in the Program on Justice, Welfare, and Economics, Harvard University.

Review:

This excellent book makes an important contribution to the scholarly debate on the meaning of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution since the democratic election of Hugo Chávez to the presidency in 1998. While some scholars depict the Chávez regime as autocratic and undemocratic, others view Chávez's Venezuela as embodying 21st-century participatory democracy and socialism. Eastwood and Ponniah have assembled a collection of high-quality, well-researched essays in an attempt to overcome the polarized nature of academic debates on Chávez's Venezuela...This pathbreaking book shows that the Venezuelan experience with 21st century socialism transcends the country's borders by planting the seeds of an alternative modernity. (M. E. Carranza Choice 2012-02-01)

Book Description Harvard University, The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Is Venezuela s Bolivarian revolution under Hugo Chavez truly revolutionary? Most books and articles tend to view the Chavez government in an either-or fashion. Some see the president as the shining knight of twenty-first-century socialism, while others see him as an avenging Stalinist strongman. Despite passion on both sides, the Chavez government does not fall easily into a seamless fable of emancipatory or authoritarian history, as these essays make clear. A range of distinguished authors consider the nature of social change in contemporary Venezuela and explore a number of themes that help elucidate the sources of the nation s political polarization. The chapters range from Fernando Coronil s Bolivarian Revolution, which examines the relationship between the state s social body (its population) and its natural body (its oil reserves), to an insightful look at women s rights by Cathy A. Rakowski and Gioconda Espina. This volume shows that, while the future of the national process is unclear, the principles elaborated by the Chavez government are helping articulate a new Latin American left.
