September 11, 2001: a series of unprecedented and unthinkable terrorist attacks on the United States. On the job less than six months, former Massachusetts governor and President Bush-appointed ambassador to Canada Paul Cellucci - mindful of the two countries' historic friendship and important economic ties - found himself on the front lines of a dramatic and, at times, explosive new political dynamic. Canada and the US: friends, partners, allies in the new world order. In the wake of the attacks Cellucci worked tirelessly with Canadian and US authorities to stabilize borders and maintain the vital back-and-forth flow of goods and services. As Cellucci reveals in Unquiet Diplomacy, however, his brutally candid and engagingly vivid memoir of his years as United States ambassador to Canada, it was a relationship that over time challenged the cliché of blissful congeniality as the two countries diverged over increasingly contentious issues like missile defense and the invasion of Iraq. In Unquiet Diplomacy Paul Cellucci deals directly and forthrightly with all the issues that both unite and divide Canadians and Americans. Not only is it a fascinating exploration of the unique but complex relationship between two countries that share the longest undefended border in the world, it is a remarkable portrait of a political life amid extraordinary political times.

Book Description: On April 17, 2001, at the Citadel in Quebec City, Paul Cellucci presented his credentials as the 20th United States Ambassador to Canada to Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. Since then, Ambassador Paul Cellucci has made his mark on Canada. He has focused on the central elements of the well-established and dynamic U.S. -Canadian relationship. It is the largest trading partnership in the world and it shares the longest undefended border. There have been some very tough times during Celluccis years in Canada and in this book he, in his characteristically open and forthright fashion, addresses all the issues that affect our complex relationship both in terms of trade and foreign affairs. There are the continuing irritants of trade disputes, such as the softwood lumber issue and Canadas reluctance to join forces with the United States in its missile defense plan. His years as a United States ambassador will be remembered as important and transformative ones, unfolding in the shadow of 9/11 and the American-led war on terror. When it comes to the crunch, as Paul Cellucci says, security trumps trade. After the terrorist attacks in the United States of September 11, 2001, Cellucci was heartened by the overwhelming support and sympathy of the Canadian people whom he had learned to respect and understand during his tenure here. As well, while he has worked to expedit border crossings for commercial and passenger traffic, he warns about the common global terrorist threat. He worked directly with Governor Tom Ridge, Director of Homeland Security and Deputy Prime Minister John Manley to create and implement the 30-Point Smart Border Action Plan. In this extraordinary and broad-ranging book, Paul Cellucci deals with all the issues that unite and divide Canadians and Americans. He explains the public diplomacy styleoutspoken and candidthat became his signature as ambassador. It was a style that some Canadians loved and others loved to hate, but which left no one indifferent.
