Description

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