Hugo Chávez by Cristina Marcano( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critically acclaimed biography of this controversial world leader is at last available in English. Born in a small town, Chavez entered the military academy and was drawn to leftist politics and a new sense of himself as predestined to change the fortunes of his country--and of Latin America. By day a family man and a military officer, by night he secretly recruited insurgents to overthrow the government. His coup attempt failed, but laid the groundwork for his ascension to the presidency eight years later. Chavez's revolutionary "Bolivarian" government stresses economic reforms meant to discourage corruption and empower the poor--yet the leader spends thousands a day on himself and cozies up to Arab oil elites. Venezuelan journalists Marcano and Barrera Tyszka explore the often crude public figure who condemns George W. Bush in fiery language but at the same time hires lobbyists to improve his country's image in the West.--From publisher description

Hugo Chávez sin uniforme by Cristina Marcano( Book )

31 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nacido en un pueblo pequeño, Chávez se inscribió en la academia militar y fue atraído a la política izquierdista y a un nuevo sentido de sí como predestinado para cambiar las fortunas de su país--y de América latina. De día un padre de familia y un oficial militar, de noche reclutaba secretamente a insurrectos para derrocar el gobierno. Su tentativa de golpe de estado falló, pero puso la base para su ascensión a la presidencia ocho años más adelante. El gobierno revolucionario "Bolivariano" de Chávez enfatiza las reformas económicas con finalidad de desalentar la corrupción y de dar más poder a los pobres--con todo el líder pasa gasta millares al día en sí y se arrima a las elites árabes del petróleo. Los periodistas venezolanos Marcano y Barrera Tyszka exploran la figura pública a veces cruda que condena George W. Bush en lengua ardiente, mientras al mismo tiempo emplea cabilderos para mejorar la imagen de su país en el Occidente.--Desde la descripción de la editorial
Patria o muerte by Alberto Barrera( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El insomnio y una persistente inquietud acompañan la jubilación del oncólogo Miguel Sanabria, que siente cómo la situación política ha emponzoñado su país, Venezuela, y también su vida, dirimida entre el extremismo antichavista de su esposa y el radicalismo bolivariano de su hermano. Esos desajustes aumentan cuando su sobrino Vladimir, recién llegado de La Habana, le pide que esconda un teléfono móvil en el que hay una grabación comprometedora y secreta de Hugo Chávez en un momento avanzado de su enfermedad. Entretanto, un periodista en paro, Fredy Lacuna, que intenta investigar sobre la enfermedad del presidente, se resiste a dejar el apartamento que le reclama la dueña, recién regresada de Miami; una estudiosa estadounidense, Madeleine, consigue un contacto importante para completar su ensayo sobre el carisma. Y María, una niña de nueve años que vive encerrada en casa con su madre por la violencia que se ha adueñado de la calle, logra encontrar un amigo por internet--book jacket

Crimes by Alberto Barrera( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unexplained blood stains appear in a young couple's apartment; a disembodied hand is found in a rubbish dump; political prisoners resort to horrific measures in order to make a point. In this brilliant new collection of stories, Alberto Barrera Tyszka casts an eye on the violence that afflicts Latin America, and in particular its intimate effects on the individuals who suffer and inflict it. Mixing the surreal with the quotidian, the banal with the unspeakable, Tyszka has created a fragmentary panorama of man's misdeeds against his own kind. These windingly elliptical stories are ceaselessly surprising, and will bury themselves into your subconscious long after the final page is turned."--Goodreads website
