Both leftist supporters and rightist opponents of the Chávez government will be outraged by the book's premise that the Chávez regime is neither dictatorial nor revolutionary, but rather is one of a long line of Latin American populist regimes that are ultimately subservient to the U.S. government and to the transnational corporations.

This well documented book covers a wide range of topics: Venezuela's political history and the long involvement of the military in that history; Venezuela's economy, and more especially Venezuela's oil economy; Venezuela's indigenous rights and human rights movements; Venezuela's labor movement; and the social policies of the Chávez government and its predecessors. In the course of discussing these topics, the author cites hundreds of sources, a great many of them first-hand sources.
