SUMMARY

No president today is more controversial than Venezuela's Hugo Ch?vez Fr?as. Elected in a landslide in 1998, he promised a peaceful revolution. That peaceful dream became a nightmare when Ch?vez was overthrown in a coup d'?tat in 2002. Surprisingly, he was brought back to power by his supporters, mostly barrio dwellers, within forty-eight hours. Although Ch?vez continues to be dogged by controversy, he stays in power because of these supporters who see themselves as active participants in a democratic revolution. As a former Catholic priest who has lived in Venezuela for the past twenty years and spent eight of those years in a cardboard-and-tin shack in one of Caracas' barrios, Charles Hardy is in a unique position to explain what is taking place. Cowboy in Caracas: A North American's Memoir of Venezuela's Democratic Revolution gives the reader insight into the Venezuelan reality, using an anecdotal presentation drawn from the writer's personal experiences. Charles Hardy has been writing and speaking about the political and social reality of Latin America for over forty years. He has visited almost every Central and South American country. James Russell is the author of five books, including After the Fifth Sun: Class and Race in North America (Prentice Hall). Currently, he teaches sociology and directs the Latin American Studies Program at Eastern Connecticut State University.Hardy, Charles is the author of 'Cowboy in Caracas A North American's Memoir of Venezuela's Democratic Revolution', published 2007 under ISBN 9781931896375 and ISBN 1931896372.
