Summary
The inside story of Hugo Chavez s rule and complex legacy Few leaders in our time have been as divisive and enigmatic as the late Hugo Chavez. In "Comandante," acclaimed journalist Rory Carroll tells the inside story of Chavez s life, his time as Venezuela s president, and his legacy. Based on interviews with ministers, aides, courtiers, and citizens, this intimate piece of reportage chronicles a unique experiment in power that veers among enlightenment, tyranny, comedy, and farce. Carroll also investigates the almost religious devotion of millions of Venezuelans who regarded Chavez as a savior and the loathing of those who branded him as a dictator. In beautiful prose that blends the lyricism and strangeness of magical realism with the brutal, ugly truth of authoritarianism, "Comandante" offers a cautionary tale for our times."
