One thought on “Hugo Chávez: Oil, Politics, and the Challenge to the U.S.

  1. Kat Lynch

    Very well researched, and interesting detail about Chavez s allies But I prefer biographies that stick to a orderly chronology.

  2. Lorena

    Kozloff offers facts He challenges the demonized caricature that has been created of this man It s history in a bit than 200 pages If you re looking for a book that further demonizes Chavez, this is not the book for you.

  3. C.

    I learned a lot about the recent history of South America, Chavez is really pulling the folks together You can t argue with the initiatives, but perhaps some of the methods and retoric.

  4. Tyler

    Not as deep or informative as a book on the subject should be The glossary was almost as long as the book, and the book was no than 120 pages.

  5. Geo

    i ve only read bits because it s so crap it s not worth finishing manages to be self serving and boring at the same time and kozloff doesn t know his shit, either.

  6. Nabila

    Good book but could have done with being even handed and a little less pro Chavez would have been nice to make up my own mind about him.
