Summary
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. 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. Nikolas Kozloff's presents a comprehensive portrait of Chavez as he runs for reelection and moves into the global spotlight
