Latin America's Turbulent Transitions the Future of Twenty-First Century Socialism by Roger Burbach( )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Over the past few years, something remarkable has occurred in Latin America. For the first time since the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua in the 1980s, people within the region have turned toward radical left governments - specifically in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Why has this profound shift taken place and how does this new, so-called Twenty-First-Century Socialism actually manifest itself? What are we to make of the often fraught relationship between the social movements and governments in these countries and do, in fact, the latter even qualify as 'socialist' in reality? These are the bold and critical questions that Latin America's Turbulent Transitions explores. The authors provocatively argue that although US hegemony in the region is on the wane, the traditional socialist project is also declining and something new is emerging. Going beyond simple conceptions of 'the left', the book reveals the true underpinnings of this powerful, transformative, and yet also complicated and contradictory process."--Publisher's website

The Pinochet affair : state terrorism and global justice by Roger Burbach( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Pinochet Affair is the epic story of the events that surrounded the dramatic arrest of General Augusto Pinochet in London in October 1998. Based on interviews and intimate sketches of the leading protagonists, Roger Burbach begins this narrative with the violent military coup that Pinochet led against the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende on September 11, 1973." "The final part of The Pinochet Affair describes the global clash that then took place - in Spain, Britain and Chile - between the politicians who sought to cover up and wash their hands of Pinochet, and the efforts of a number of brave judges, lawyers and human rights organizations determined to see justice prevail. Roger Burbach concludes by discussing the impact of the Pinochet Affair around the world, as the global human rights community seeks to establish an international regime of justice that stands in direct opposition to cynical politicians such as George W. Bush and Tony Blair, who mouth the slogans of justice and liberty while perpetrating new acts of state terrorism."--Jacket

Venezuela revolution from the inside out ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A voyage into Latin America's most exciting experiment of the new millennium, exploring the history and projects of the Bolivarian Revolution through interviews with a range of its participants, from academics to farm workers and those living in the margins of Caracas. This introduction to the "revolución bonita" ("pretty revolution") offers in-depth interviews, unforgettable images and a lively soundtrack that will open new vistas onto this hopeful human project. As he totes his camera on bus and car trips all over Venezuela, director Clifton Ross becomes our tour guide through the Bolivarian Revolution. He sweeps us through its history and takes us to its works-in-progress on the ground. These schools, rural lending banks and cooperatives weave the fabric of Venezuela's 'Socialism of the 21st Century.' They show its failures and successes, its warp and woof. Through it all runs the frayed but unbreakable thread of a people in struggle."
