Marta Harnecker is the director of MEPLA, a research organization on the history of popular movements in Latin America.
'This book is an illuminating overview of the revolutionary left, particularly in Latin America, and its failings in the second part of the 20th century. Essential reading for all those who are trying to revive the left to meet new challenges.' Samir Amin `Full of observations, analyses and reflections which are extremely useful for the times we live in. Harnecker's personal knowledge of so many social and political movements makes this book particularly important.' Francois Houtart `For Harnecker, politics is the art of discovering the potential in the present in order to make possible tomorrow what appears impossible today. In this book she does just this for Latin America and in particular Venezuela. But first she ditches the dogmas of the past with a disarming frankness. The result is an original and valuable contribution to rethinking left politics.' Hilary Wainwright, author of Reclaim the State 'Here in Britain, we still have a lot to learn about participatory democracy and this book is an excellent place to start. Charley Allan recommends Marta Harnecker's in-depth study of left-wing movements to anyone aiming to change the system.' Revolutionary Links, Morning Star 'Marta's ideas about what the left should be doing is a great tonic; and not just for those in Latin America but for those of us on the British left in these dying days of Blairism.' Hugh O' Shaughnessy, Tribune
