Quico says: In the current New Republic, Enrique Krauze writes a remarkable essay grounding Chávez’s authoritarianism in its historical context. Whether he’s covering familiar ground or striking off into what is – to me – entirely new territory, Krauze’s narrative always crackles with intelligence and insight. The elegance of his prose and the depth of his analysis are in a league of their own. Read it.
Definitely read it.
