Brazil in the World: The International Relations of a South American Giant

by

Brazil in the World: The International Relations of a South American Giant Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brazil has become a key actor in today's global governance, playing a critical role in international economic talks at the G20 and WTO, brokering North-South relations, and stepping into regional and global security affairs.

This book addresses how Brazil is looking to change the international order, how it conducts its regional and global relations, and how it intends to use its rising influence in the world. An in-depth examination of Brazil's growing diplomatic assertiveness, it provides a systematic overview of Brazil's position on major issues.

With scholars, policy makers and course instructors in mind, the book is organized around three themes: key policy areas (such as trade, environment, security), the Americas (relations with the US, South American relations, etc.), and the world (global governance, North-South relations, etc.). Each chapter features case studies, illustrative anecdotes, and visual representations of data.

Written by a leading expert, Brazil in the World offers a well-organized primer into the international activities and policies of one of the dominant powers in the 21st century.

Synopsis:

Brazil's contemporary international relations are introduced within their domestic, regional, and global contexts to foster understanding of present and future directions in Brazilian foreign policy.
