About the Author

Cindy Sheehan has authored five book, Revolution, A Love Story is her latest. Cindy's oldest child, Casey, was killed in Iraq on April 04, 2004 in a war that neither she nor he supported. Cindy garnered international notoriety in the summer of 2005 when she camped out in front of the vacation home of then US president, George Bush, in Crawford, Tx. In Revolution, Cindy continues the class analysis and the connection of the so-called dots she began in a previous book: Myth America. Sheehan is mother to three surviving children and four grandbabies. She divides her time between writing, hosting her own radio show, The Soapbox, traveling to work for peace and justice, and playing with her grandchildren. Cindy is convinced true change does not exist in the current capitalist system.

Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son Casey in George W. Bush's misbegotten war in Iraq, is not only an activist, but she's an author. The story she tells is one of ideals, of love, and of the prospect of peace in our troubled world. The ones whom she holds as exemplars include Chavez in Venezuela, now undergoing treatment for serious illness, the man who put people first in his country. Despite our "hands off" policy toward Chavez, Cindy shows how a peaceful revolution should evolve.

I was fortunate enough to see at first hand recently another country in which its leader is putting people first: Brazil.y experiences there, as an ordinary tourist, convinced me that our State Department needs to extend the hand of friendship to our South American neighbors. No more should we support dictatorships, as we have in the past; instead we should do as Cindy Sheehan recommends: give peace a chance.

Cindy Sheehan's first book is inspiring and informative. It's an easy read and makes a simple but thorough critique of capitalism and U.S. imperialism while also making an excellent case for socialism - how it's possible, and why it's absolutely necessary. Highly recommended!

Sheehan is not in the pockets of corporations, which is where some reviewers here seem to get their news. She analyzes (briefly) Capitalism, Socialism and capitalism. A very good book for those wondering about Chavez, or leftism in general.

Hugo Chavez, clown prince of a decaying society

This work is an utter joke, which armchair socialists wax poetic while basically the latter portion of my family tries to find basic house hold items, votes are burned, murder rates increase, billions are given to Cuba, repression and governmental overreach and abuses occur daily.

This work is a pathetic regurgitation of the state's media funding this woman, and it's a shame Amazon even carries it.

Venezuela, with a population smaller than Canada's, suffers more homicides than the United States. Robberies at gunpoint -- "express kidnappings" as they are called -- are regular occurrences in middle-class neighborhoods. And if middle-class neighborhoods evince any disaffection from the regime, they lose what little police protection they have, or even discover the police suddenly abetting and aiding the criminals that prey upon their community.

Property is seized. Businesses are arbitrarily nationalized. Conversations are eavesdropped upon. The Internet is policed, at least to the best of the (very limited) ability of Venezuela's not very competent security forces.

Hugo Chavez has laid Venezuela's economy to waste. One of the world's great energy producers must turn its streetlamps off at night. One of the world's wealthiest exporters cannot afford to import enough food. One of the world's energy superpowers is seeing its production slowly dwindle away because of chronic under-investment in the oil fields and the loss of access to technology as foreign companies are harassed and expropriated.

manipulation.

Sadly, 90% of the peace movement has always been made of up communist front groups. What they really mean is that the U. S. and other nations should not use military force to stop communist takeovers of nations around the world. Communists could always start wars in other nations and kill however many people they needed to to win, then get down to the real killing once they take power, but no nation could try to stop them without being labeled "warmongers."

Sheehan's use of her son's death as propaganda is proof of what a disgusting and despicable person she is. If he had been fighting for communism, she would praise his efforts.

This book is a pack of lies and twisted truths, and I am sure that Sheehan knows that as she said in a tv interview that her political opinions existed before her son even joined the military.

Funny that she would hold Chavez up as a peaceful man given that he threatened to launch a war against Mexico over some petty thing and regularly threatened his neighbor Columbia with war to support the communist guerillas in Columbia's jungle.
Sheehan treats an brutal dictator as if he were a prophet.

People are suffering in Venezuela's prisons and journalists there have been murdered for the very right to free speech that Sheehan uses to pretend to want world peace when she wants world communism. Caracas has the highest rate of murder in the world and the police won't even try to protect any citizen who isn't a known communist and Chavez worshipper.

Sheehan fails to tell how people, even families, turn against each other under communism, with those for communism hating those who aren't believers. And you must be a true believer or else.
