The Call Of The World
A Political MemoirBook - 2016
Bill Graham - Canada's minister of foreign affairs and minister of defence during the tumultuous years following 9/11 - takes us on a personal journey from his Vancouver childhood to important behind-the-scenes moments in recent global history. With candour and wit, he recounts meetings with world leaders, contextualizes important geopolitical relationships, and offers acute observations on backstage politics. He explains Canada's decision 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.
