Cuba : a new history by Richard Gott( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This new look at the history of Cuba illuminates the island's entire revolutionary past as well as the most recent decades of the Castro regime." "Events in Fidel Castro's island nation often command international attention and just as often inspire controversy. Impassioned debate over situations as diverse as the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Elian Gonzalez affair is characteristic not only in modern times but throughout the centuries of Cuban history. In this book, British journalist Richard Gott casts a fresh eye on the history of the Caribbean island from its pre-Columbian origins to the present day. He provides a European perspective on a country that is perhaps too frequently seen solely from the American point of view." "The author emphasizes such little-known aspects of Cuba's history as its tradition of racism and violence, its black rebellions, the survival of its Indian peoples, and the lasting influence of Spain. The book also offers an original look at aspects of the Revolution, including Castro's relationship with the Soviet Union, military exploits in Africa, and his attempts to promote revolution in Latin America and among American blacks. In a concluding section, Gott tells the story of the Revolution's survival in the post-Soviet years, and prospects for the future."--Jacket

Hugo Chávez and the Bolivarian Revolution by Richard Gott( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The only first-hand report on contemporary Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, by veteran correspondent Richard Gott, places the country's controversial and charismatic president in historical perspective, and examines his plans and programs. This new edition has a chapter on the attempted and failed military coup, Venezuela's recent recall election, and discusses US covert intervention against this democratically elected public official. The spectre of Simon Bolivar hovers once again over Latin America as the aims and ambitions of the Liberator are taken up by Chavez. Welcomed by the inhabitants of the teeming shanty towns of Caracas as their potential saviour, and greeted by Washington with considerable alarm, this former golpista-turned-democrat has already begun the most wide-ranging transformation of oil-rich Venezuela for half a century, and dramatically affected the political debate throughout Latin America."--BOOK JACKET
Britain's empire : resistance, repression and revolt by Richard Gott( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revelatory new history punctures the still widely held belief that the British Empire was an enlightened and civilizing enterprise of great benefit to its subject peoples. Instead, Britain's Empire reveals a history of systemic repression and almost continual violence, showing how British rule was imposed as a military operation and maintained as a military dictatorship. For colonized peoples, the experience was a horrific one'of slavery, famine, battle and extermination. Yet, as Richard Gott illustrates, the empire's oppressed peoples did not go gently into that good night. Wherever Britain tried to plant its flag, there was resistance. From Ireland to India, from the American colonies to Australia, Gott chronicles the backlash. He shows, too, how Britain provided a blueprint for the genocides of twentieth-century Europe, and argues that its past leaders must rank alongside the dictators of the twentieth century as the perpetrators of crimes against humanity on an infamous scale. In tracing this history of resistance, all but lost to modern memory, Richard Gott recovers these forgotten peoples and puts them where they deserve to be: at the heart of the story of Britain's empire
In the shadow of the liberator : Hugo Chávez and the transformation of Venezuela by Richard Gott( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hugo Chavez, elected President of Venezuela in December 1998 with a large popular mandate, is the most intriguing political figure to have emerged in Latin America since Fidel Castro. A former army colonel with a philosophy of left-wing nationalism, he staged an unsuccessful coup in 1992 and spent two years in prison, yet his fierce opposition to the country's corrupt and unpopular ruling elite turned him into a popular hero."--Jacket

Cuba in revolution by Richard Gott( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The exceptional photographs in this publication capture the complexity of the Cuban Revolution in all its contradictory beauty. From Constantino Arias's portraits of poverty and wealth in pre-Revolutionary Havana to the photographs of the dead Che Guevara in Bolivia, the Cuban story was told in silver gelatin as much as it was in words. Snapshots of Fidel Castro playing golf or hunting in the Soviet Union complement iconic pictures of Che Guevara by Alberto Korda and Rene Burri, and yet revolutionary Cuba was taking its first steps during one of the hottest periods of the Cold War. The political and the personal merge in this collection to reveal startlingly intimate portraits of Che Guevara by Andrew Saint-George and photographs of the local, forbidden pop culture in the mid-sixties by Jose Figueroa. Throughout the publication there is an exhilarating tension between heroic portraiture of the leaders-Castro, Guevara, and Cienfuegos-and the dramatic "staging" of a people in the throes of revolutionary transformation
