Bill Graham, Canada's foreign affairs minister during Colin Powell's term as US secretary of state, draws on his experiences as an international lawyer and politician to guide us through an astonishing array of national and international events. With candour and wry humour, he recounts his meetings with world leaders, contextualizes important geopolitical relationships, and offers acute observations on backstage international politics. Graham explains, without apology, why Canada chose not to participate in the 2003 invasion of Iraq and makes a passionate case for why international law offers the best hope for a safer, more prosperous, and just world.
