Venezuela's Oil
Venezuela's Oil
By Romulo Betancourt
Alien & Unwin, 1978, 275 pp

The grand old man of Venezuelan democracy returns to the fray with an interesting supplement to his 1956 volume, Venezuela, Politicay Petroleo, in the form of essays and documents reviewing oil's influence on the life of the nation. Praise, fears, blame, are freely dispensed in these intensely personal writings.
