The Bolivarian Revolution, a political process in Venezuela led by President Hugo Chavez, sought to build an inter-American coalition to implement a nationalist and state-led economy emphasizing anti-imperialism, participatory democracy, and economic self-sufficiency. Join Lorin as he focuses on this interesting historical period from 1992 to 2013, covering:

• the enduring nature of the populist element of the revolution

• the importance of the military/civilian cooperation in the revolution
