Brazil has suddenly become a country of interest to the West, playing a critical role in global economic talks at the G20 and WTO, brokering North-South relations through its new international economic geography, and stepping into regional and global security questions through its activities in Haiti, Paraguay and the nuclear question in Iran. This book explains why Brazil is taking an increasingly prominent international role, how it conducts and plans its regional and global interactions, and what the South American giant intends to do with its rising international influence. The book is written for the non-specialist, providing students and other interested readers with a well-organized, concise introduction to the fundamentals of the foreign policy of an emerging Twenty-First Century power.

'This is a controversial book that makes an important contribution to understanding Brazilian foreign policy with the concept of structural power and Brazil's pursuit of it. It is an excellent conceptual tool for understanding an unusual foreign policy.' Miriam Gomes Saraiva, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Latin American Politics and Society -- .
