History of Venezuela
Independent from Spain: July 1811
At the time of the Spanish discovery, the indigenous people were mainly agriculturists and hunters living in
groups along the coast, the Andean mountain range, and along the Orinoco River. The first permanent
Spanish settlement in South America--Nuevo Toledo--was established in Venezuela in 1522. Venezuela was
a relatively neglected colony in the 1500s and 1600s as the Spaniards focused on extracting gold from other areas of their empire in the Americas.
The Venezuelans began to grow restive under colonial control toward the end of the 18th century. After
several unsuccessful uprisings, the country achieved independence from Spain in 1821 under the leadership
of its most famous son, Simon Bolivar. Venezuela, along with what are now Colombia, Panama, and Ecuador,
was part of the Republic of Gran Colombia until 1830, when Venezuela separated and became a sovereign country.

The History of Venezuela - H. Micheal Tarver, Julia C. Frederick
Examines the history of Venezuela from earliest times to the present day. This book traces the history of
Venezuela from its sighting by Columbus in his third voyage, to today's controversial government of Hugo
Chavez. Venezuela was a Spanish colony for 300 years before the South American independence movement liberated it in 1821. After a brief period of unification with Colombia and Ecuador, Venezuela was
then controlled by a succession of military dictators. Political strife and civil war followed. In the 1900s oil was
discovered and military rule ensued. Venezuela became the world's leading oil exporter, but much of the
nation's people remained poor. In 1958, the country established a democratic government and has remained a
democracy ever since. Ideal for students and general readers, "The History of Venezuela" provides a
concise, up-to-date history of the country. Reference features include a biographical section highlighting
famous figures in Venezuelan history, a timeline of important historical events, a glossary of terms, and a bibliographical essay with suggestions for further reading.
