Behind the Bolivarian Revolution
This just-published book by well-known Latin American solidarity campaigners Dr Coral Wynter and Jim McIlroy is a unique account of Venezuela's struggles for sovereignty, justice and socialism from the point of view of grassroots participants in the revolution.
Based on interviews with people from many parts of society, Voices from Venezuela tells the story of the first socialist revolution of the 21st century through voices filled with dignity, courage and hope. The interviews were conducted when the authors were living in Caracas during 2006, as correspondents for the progressive Australian newspaper Green Left Weekly.
A must read for everyone wanting to understand why and how the Venezuelan revolution is shaking and shaping global politics today.
