About the Author

Leslie C. Gates is assistant professor of sociology at Binghamton University.


"Most explanations of the rise of Hugo Chavez focus attention on failed institutions and policies. Electing Chavez shifts attention to the private sector, which discredited itself in the public eye with scandals and even helped finance the Chavez campaign. Although other observers have suspected that these factors played a role, Leslie Gates is the first to provide comprehensive, systematic evidence." - Michael Coppedge, University of Notre Dame "This case study enhances our understanding of the political impact of corruption and of relations between business and petrostates. Class analysis and institutional failure cannot alone explain Chavez's rise. Gates's highly creative empirical investigation shows how declining public confidence in business and fear of losing access to the resource-rich government induced many businessmen to support Chavez despite his anti-neoliberal appeal." - Daniel Hellinger, Webster University"
