If you're interested in the history of South America, then you will find this book of great value. The history of Venezuela is an important part of the history of South America. Because Venezuela has a rather violent and dramatic history, a complete and comprehensive history would contain many books and thousands of pages. This book is quite concise, while it isn't leaving out any important occurrences. Writing history can't be done without expressing opinions and interpreting events. The great merit of this book is that the writers of this book express pretty balanced opinions. I read the paperback edition. The paperback and the hardcover contain both only one small map of present Venezuela. What's a history book without maps? It is relatively easy to add some more maps and this would accommodate the reader very much. Maps of the Spanish Captaincies, Gran Colombia, demographic and geographic maps, the important battles of Bolívar and Páez, the 1st republic of de Miranda and so on. However, still four stars!

Having never read any history on Venezuela makes this 5stars in comparison to itself! For general history, and insight to the culture and heritage it is as good as it gets unless you are looking for something in depth covering a single topic.
