Hugo! is the remarkable biography of Hugo Chávez, President of Venezuela and leader of the Bolivian Revolution. Ex-paratrooper and outspoken socialist, Chávez is known for his stance against big business, fearless threats to the Bush administration, social reforms that have violently polarized his country, and also for providing a model for new governments and social movements across South America.
Bart Jones was eyewitness to Chávez' rise to power, and describes his life in extraordinary detail, creating a comprehensive portrait of a man who has affected the most radical transformation of Venezuela for half a century, and dramatically affected the political debate throughout Latin America.
