    Venezuela en 1924. Labor política y administrativa del gobierno nacional presidido por el general Juan Vicente Gómez by [Venezuela]

    Caracas: Caracas, Lit. y Tip. del Comercio, 1924. First edition. Gray paper wrappers, stamped in gilt and decorated in raised colors, tied in red ribbons, deckled fore edge.

Harris," who was an Inspector general in the U.S. Army stationed in Panama. José Eleazar López Contreras (1883-1973) was an army general, one of Juan Vicente Gómez's supporters, who would go on to become Minister of War in 1931 and would succeed Gomez upon his death, to become President of Venezuela from 1935 until 1941 (as a side note, it was Contreras who accepted the ships Koenigstein and Caribia which had fled Germany with Jewish refugees during the war). 1924 was the 100th anniversary of Venezuelan independence and Juan Vicente Gómez (1857-1935), who was the leader of Venezuela between 1908 and 1935, sometimes in office and sometimes not, but always in control, wanted to show off the gains in his country, fittingly ending with its petroleum infrastructure. But Gomez was also responsible for its loss of independence, by aiding the undo influence that the United States would gain over Venezuela. According to Rómulo Betancourt, former president of Venezuela "Gomez was something more than a local despot, he was the instrument of foreign control of the Venezuelan economy, the ally and servant of powerful outside interests" (Venezuela: Oil and Politics, Houghton Mifflin, 1979, p. 43). A volume on Venezuela's independence, in a matching format, was published the same day (See our inventory number 43503: Venezuela en la independencia, 1824-1924. Ofrenda del ejército de Venezuela al ejército del Perú en el centenario de la Batalla de Ayacucho). OCLC locates only six institutional holdings: NYPL, LOC, Univ. Colorado, and Univ.
