Communes and Workers' Control in Venezuela
Building 21st Century Socialism from Below
A sweeping, insightful history from below of the Bolivarian Revolution and its efforts to build socialism in the 21st century.
Too often the story of Venezuela’s Bolivarian revolution is told with an excessive focus on former president Hugo Chávez.

This fascinating account draws on extensive empirical studies and participant interviews.
