Description

The Chavez that emerges from Jones' account is neither a saint nor a revolutionary tyrant, but a master politician and an inspired improviser, a Bolivarian nationalist and an unashamed socialist. Jones tells the story of Chavez's impoverished childhood, military career, clandestine political activity, and his presidency.

Very readable, appears to be meticulously researched. Confirms me in my belief that Chavez is one of the best things to happen to Venezuela and the region.
