Rómulo Betancourt and the Transformation of Venezuela
Rómulo Betancourt and the Transformation of Venezuela
By Robert J. Alexander
Transaction Books, 1981, 750 pp.

A well-known authority on Venezuela presents here a biography, in detail and depth, of his friend, the eminent former president who wrought such profound and constructive changes in the life of his nation. Personal information available to the author has been drawn upon, although the book is not official in the sense of being based on Betancourt's archives.
