John Lynch's biography, Simón Bolívar: A Life is a book of That he is so little known in North America obscures the fact that Simon Bolivar was like all our Founding Fathers rolled into one - plus a winning general, which none of the Founding Fathers ever were. And when he had served his role as revolutionary and liberator, he turned to nation-building. It was there he finally failed.
Simón Bolívar was a revolutionary who freed six countries, an intellectual who argued the principles of national liberation, and a general who fought a cruel colonial war. His life, passions, battles, and great victories became embedded in Spanish American culture almost as soon as they happened. The book illuminates the inner world of Bolívar, the dynamics of his leadership, his power to command, and his modes of ruling the diverse peoples of Spanish America. The key to his greatness, Lynch concludes, was supreme will power and an ability to inspire people to follow him beyond their immediate interests, in some cases through years of unremitting struggle.
Lynch's book is informative, but isn't as easy to read as some biographies are, such as David McCullough's "John Adams. Simon Bolivar: A Life" doesn't begin with Bolivar's birth, but an earthquake that rocked Venezuela (place of SB's birth) in 1812. The earthquake was seen by some royalist clergymen as divine punishment for Venezuelans revolting against the Spanish. Lynch's book is relatively brief (300 pages), but dense.
