Venezuela: The Democratic Experience
Edited by John D. Martz and David J. Myers
Praeger, 1977, 406 pp.
A broad Venezuelan survey in three parts: the historical and social framework; the articulation and aggregation of the main interest groups; and policy and performance in specific areas, including oil and foreign policy. The democratic-reformist prognosis is favorable for 10 to 12 years; after that, "prospects are problematic."
