The Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela has brought Hugo Chavez to world attention as the foremost challenger of the neoliberal consensus and American foreign policy. Drawing on first-hand experience of Venezuela and meetings with Chavez, Tariq Ali shows how Chavez's views have polarized Latin America and examines the hostility directed against his administration. Contrasting the Cuban and Venezuelan revolutionary processes, Ali discusses the enormous influence of Fidel Castro on Chavez, President of Bolivia Evo Morales and, in this fully updated edition, the newly-elected President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, the latest addition to the "Axis of Hope." Infused with references to the culture and poetry of South America, "Pirates of the Caribbean" guides us through a world divided between privilege and poverty, a continent that is once again on the march.
