|aBeing among the most influential countries in the Western Hemisphere, the United States and Brazil have maintained close political and economic ties since the independence of Brazil. In recent years, Brazil has arisen into a new power and its influence in Latin American affairs drew it into the plans of the United States; at the same time, this new situation also affects gravely its diplomatic policies. In the nighties, Latin American followers of United States’ neo-liberal economic reforms met with great difficulties, and one by one they turned to left-wing policies. In 1999, crisis resulted from the failure of economic reform hit Brazil. The following year, the Worker’s Party, Brazilian left-wing party, won the general election, and in 2003 Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva took the office. His administration lasted for 7 years. The relations between most Latin American leftist governments and the United States have long been hostile. However, Lula’s leftist government had maintained with the US an intriguing relation. The Bush administration’s war against terror, which coincided with Lula’s taking office, generated in Latin America waves of anti-American sentiments. If the United States chose to work with Lula, who had taken the route of moderate leftist, it might prove to be beneficial to consolidate its position in Latin America; however, the United States stuck with its unilateralism and confronted head-on against Brazil’s multilateral policy. Later, the relations between Brazil and United States came to become the confrontation between the two leaders of developed and developing countries. In the eight years of Lula’s administration, United States and Brazil had maintained a special relation where conflict and interest coexisted. The present study discusses whether the bilateral political and economic developments during Lula’s regime (2003-2010) were alienated due to contradictions. It further investigates both countries’ foreign policies and issues of cooperation and conflict. The study is divided into three chapters. The first two each examines past relations before 2003 and political and economic relations during Lula’s regime. The last chapter offers the conclusion based on historical development, political representation and economic data..
