Synopsis

All over Latin America, and especially in the Venezuela of Hugo Chavez, Latin America's liberator, Simon Bolivar, is a political idol and symbol of that continent's new political self-confidence. The legends about him remain alive and have been the basis for many political speeches, plays, and fictional works. Michael Zeuske, one of the world's leading experts on Bolivar, examines the dimensions of the Bolivar cult and myths and compares these with the real historical person, and the world in which he lived. Zeuske's account corrects major inaccuracies in the historical texts, such as the legendary meeting between Alexander von Humboldt and Bolivar, which never actually took place.

Michael Zeuske is a Latin American history specialist who has held the position of fellow at many leading research institutions, including Yale University and the University of Michigan. He is also an expert in the twentieth-century slave trade, and is the author of Black Caribbean: Slaves, Slavery and Emancipation Cultures .
