The Real Venezuela : Making Socialism in the 21st Century Paperback / softback

Description

Venezuela has become a huge source of hope and inspiration for the Left throughout the world.

Some see it as a shining example of how to begin building a successful socialist state, but Western leaders see it as a dangerous enemy and accuse Chavez of being a dictator.

This book reveals the truth by examining the country from the ground up. *BR**BR*Iain Bruce explores the political changes underway in Venezuela at the level of the lives of ordinary people.

Through grassroots investigations and extended interviews, he explores a series of key transformations in Venezuela: a new social economy around a network of co-operatives; workplace democracy; popular education; radical agrarian reform; participatory budgets and community planning.

The result is a clear picture of everyday life in Venezuela.*BR**BR*No other book on the country has this level of detail; it will be a key text for students of Latin American politics and social movements and of interest to anyone following the fortunes of the Bolivarian Revolution.
