A Hero's Curse is the story of the modern Venezuelans whose lives have taken shape in the shadow of Sim�n Bol�var and his most passionate disciple, Comandante Hugo Ch�vez.
For nearly two hundred years Venezuela's political leaders have evoked the legacy of their liberator, Bol�var, to stir popular support. While Bol�var's heroic struggle helped free a continent, his affinity for dictatorial rule spawned a vicious cycle of liberation and tyranny that has always haunted Venezuela. Since Ch�vez's death, the battle for Venezuela's future has intensified. Amidst a collapsing economy, escalating violence, and shortages of basic goods, there are increasing calls for a change of leadership. Rivals for power compete in demonstrating to the masses that they are the new, true, Venezuelan hero come to set them free.
Kajsa Norman chronicles the rise and fall of Ch�vez and the tragic impact of Venezuela's 'heroic' politics on ordinary citizens. The stage is set for yet another turn in Venezuela's cycle of perpetual liberation, with a new generation of leaders clamouring for the title of national hero.
