Historical Dictionary of Venezuela, Hardback Book


Venezuela is the seventh largest oil producer and holder of the largest proven reserves in the world.

It's also a country full of problems, as evidenced by having the biggest inflation rates and, by some estimates the highest crime rates worldwide.

Despite having an oil boom between 2004 through 2008 with income of around two billion dollars, in 2016 it suffered an immense economic contraction and probably the largest supply shortcut crisis in its history.

This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Venezuela contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography.

The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture.

This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Venezuela.
