Copei: Ideologia y Liderazgo
By Ricardo Combellas
Editorial Ariel, 1985, 339 pp

Ricardo Combellas has written a remarkable study of the Social Christian party Copei, one of the two leading political parties in Venezuela. The first of its kind ever written by a Venezuelan scholar, it is a significant book for those interested in the establishment and development of democratic party politics in Latin America. It explains the ideology and organization that have aided the expansion of Social Christian ideas in Latin, and particularly in Central, America.
