Abstract:

Outlines the terrible consequences of neoliberalism for Latin America in the second half of the last century, as well as continuing efforts by the US in particular to undermine the region's left politicians. The main focus is on Venezuela and Hugo Chavez, who is overseeing a change of direction, involving a huge redistribution of wealth away form the elite, but is subject to an international press and governmental campaign aimed at undermining its achievements and assisting its overthrow.
