9780822346777: Who Can Stop the Drums?: Urban Social Movements in Chavez's Venezuela
Críticas:

"Who Can Stop the Drums? is a marvelous contribution to the literature on social movements, neoliberalism, cultural politics, and Venezuela. While most analyses of the country portray Hugo Chavez as either a liberating figure fighting neoliberalism to help the poor, or an authoritarian caudillo preserving his own power while destroying liberties and human rights, Fernandes goes far beyond such polarities. By concentrating on the experiences of poor activists in Caracas, she provides a unique and nuanced perspective on a complicated political process, and reveals the Chavez government as much more complicated and interesting than most other scholars have allowed."--Nancy Postero, author of Now We Are Citizens: Indigenous Politics in Postmulticultural Bolivia "Too much of the scholarly and political writing on the Venezuelan government centers on President Hugo Chavez and his style and rhetoric. In this original, timely, and important book, Sujatha Fernandes focuses on the barrio residents who form the social base of the Chavista movement. Along the way, she demonstrates a detailed understanding of Venezuela's culture and recent political history."--Steve Ellner, author of Rethinking Venezuelan Politics: Class, Conflict, and the Chavez Phenomenon "Fernandes's book is a timely contribution that foregrounds the struggles of barrio activists and illustrates the complexity of the Chavez era seen from below... The Venezuelan people and their cultures and struggles deserve more attention and should be the subject of more scholarly work in their own right. Who Can Stop The Drums? is an excellent point of departure that should stimulate more explorations of this kind." - Matt Wilde, Alborada.net and Venezuelanalysis.com

Reseña del editor:

In this vivid ethnography of social movements in the barrios, or poor shantytowns, of Caracas, Sujatha Fernandes reveals a significant dimension of political life in Venezuela since President Hugo Chavez was elected. Fernandes traces the histories of the barrios, from the guerrilla insurgency, movements against displacement, and cultural resistance of the 1960s and 1970s, through the debt crisis of the early 1980s and the neoliberal reforms that followed, to the Chavez period. She weaves barrio residents' life stories into her account of movements for social and economic justice. "Who Can Stop the Drums?" demonstrates that the transformations underway in Venezuela are shaped by negotiations between the Chavez government and social movements with their own forms of historical memory, local organization, and consciousness. Fernandes portrays everyday life and politics in the shantytowns of Caracas through accounts of community-based radio, barrio assemblies, and popular fiestas, and the many interviews she conducted with activists and government officials. Most of the barrio activists she presents are Chavez supporters. They see the leftist president as someone who understands their precarious lives and has made important changes to the state system to redistribute resources. Yet they must balance receiving state resources, which are necessary to fund their community-based projects, with their desire to retain a sense of agency. Fernandes locates the struggles of the urban poor within Venezuela's transition from neoliberalism to what she calls 'post-liberalism'. She contends that in contemporary Venezuela we find a hybrid state; while Chavez is actively challenging neoliberalism, the state remains subject to the constraints and logics of global capital.
