Title: An Examination Of Perception And Knowledge Concerning The Venezuelan Government Under The Leadership Of Hugo Chavez
Author: Prescott, Joshua Dean
Abstract: This study examines the perception and knowledge of American undergraduate students regarding the Venezuelan Government under the leadership of President Hugo Chavez . A perception and knowledge survey covering various and relative aspects of the Chavez Administration in Venezuela was given to undergraduate students seeking a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice . It is proposed that undergraduate students seeking Criminology and Criminal Justice degrees will compare with Americans overall in having low perceptions and knowledge of Venezuela , the President of Venezuela , Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias , the current Venezuelan Government and its role in the global community , thus supporting a lack of awareness among Americans regarding issues outside of U .S . borders . Race /Ethnicity is used by the researcher to examine responses to survey items to determine if President Chavez' influence among minorities or Caucasians in America is significantly different . Data from the survey results are used as a support instrument in applying David Matza and Gresham Sykes "Techniques of Neutralization" to Hugo Chavez and his radical socialist ideologies and activities . In the conclusion , the author gives suggestions and possible implications to assist in a broader awareness among Americans of President Chavez concerning threats to the national and economic security of the United States of America .
