book cover

We Created Chavez: A People's History of the Venezuelan Revolution provides a systematic, bottom-up approach to Venezuelan politics from 1958 to the present. It offers a much-needed new perspective on Hugo Chavez's rise to power. Writing in a lively style and demonstrating a thorough command of the issues and personalities in recent Venezuelan history, George Ciccariello-Maher has produced a book essential to understanding the phenomenon of 'Chavismo, ' which has attracted widespread interest throughout the world."--Steve Ellner, author of Rethinking Venezuelan Politics: Class, Conflict, and the Chavez Phenomenon

The Institute for Policy Studies joins with Teaching for Change's Bookstore for a discussion and book signing with George Ciccariello-Maher.
