For the first time in bookstores comes the Italian translation of “Chavez. Il Venezuela e la nuova America Latina” by Aleida Guevara. A narrative that is almost a confession, a friendly conversation with Hugo Chávez. The legendary revolutionary’s first-born child interviews the charismatic Venezuelan President. Among the most important leaders of Latin America today, in this extraordinary interview Chávez expresses his sincerest nationalistic convictions, confides his impressions following the coup attempted against his government in April 2002 and confronts, among other things, the themes of the new democratic Constitution of Venezuela, its social programmes, and relations with the United States and Cuba.From this intimate and truly unusual conversation emerge not only the political figure but also the private Chávez: his childhood and education, his commitment and political ideals, his vision with respect to the legacy of Che Guevara in Latin America, his hopes for the future of his country. As an appendix, an exclusive interview with Venezuelan Minister of Defence Jorge García Carneiro who played a key role in defending the government from the attempted coup of 2002.
Aleida Guevara is the daughter of Ernesto Che Guevara and Aleida March. She works as a paediatrician in Havana, Cuba where she is engaged in first person in the anti-globalisation movement.
