About Celso Amorim
Between 2003 and 2010, under President Lula, Celso Amorim was at the forefront of an important period in the history of Brazil’s international relations—one in which the country practiced a newly assertive foreign policy, extending its diplomatic reach to the global stage. This book is a reflection of behind the scenes of global politics, combining detailed accounts of international negotiations with candid and insightful descriptions of the countless world leaders Amorim came into close contact with—including, to name but a few, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Tony Blair, Manmohan Singh, Mahmoud Abbas, and Benjamin Netanyahu.
