Despite being elected in 1998 by the largest majority of any president in Venezuela's 40-year history of democracy, Hugo Chávez has faced determined opposition from within his country and also the United States. Many world leaders consider him dangerous for his socialist ideals and his control of an important source of the world's oil, and they cannot forget his 1992 coup attempt. Yet his goal of a truly democratic Venezuela makes him incredibly popular among the lower classes in his country. Whether he is a liberator of the people or a power-hungry agitator remains to be seen, but he is certain to attract controversy. This new, full-color biography offers readers a perceptive introduction to this outspoken and unpredictable leader.
