Drawing on first-hand experience of Venezuela and meetings with Chávez, Tariq Ali shows how Chávez ’\'s views have polarized Latin America and examines the hostility directed against his administration. Ali discusses the enormous influence of Fidel Castro on both Chávez and Evo Morales, the newly elected President of Bolivia, and, reflecting on a recent trip to Havana, contrasts the Cuban and Venezuelan revolutionary processes.

Pirates of the Caribbean guides us through a world divided between privilege and poverty, a continent that is once again on the march.
