Venezuela: The Democratic Experience
Edited by John D. Martz and David J. Myers
Praeger, 1977, 406 pp

Competent scholars, some American and some Venezuelan, contribute their insights to this completely revised edition of a book first published in 1977. Party systems, public opinion, public administration, local government, state enterprises, oil and agriculture are among the topics. As for prognosis, the editors foresee "an austerity-modified version of the existing limited pluralist arrangement."
