In this fresh look at Venezuelan politics,
Steve Ellner emphasizes 
the central significance of the countrys
economic and social 

Ellner's journey through
modern Venezuelan history?observing popular 
masses and social actors
as much as political elites and formal 
informs his analysis of Hugo Chávez's 
presidency and the
"Bolivarian Revolution" at its core. Perhaps 
important, as he explores the rise of Chávismo, opposition 
within the country and abroad, internal tensions in the Chávista

movement, and the trajectory of the Chávez government
and on the international stage, he sheds new light not
only on 
Venezuela, but also on the recent political turmoil
elsewhere in 
Latin America.
