'Smart. Informative. Overdue' Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google

Political risk - the probability that a political action could significantly affect an organisation - is changing fast, and it's more widespread than ever before.

In the past, the chief concern used to be whether a foreign dictator would nationalise the country's oil industry. Today, political risk stems from a widening array of agents, from Twitter users and terrorists to hackers and insurgents. What's more, the very institutions and laws that are supposed to reduce uncertainty and risk often increase it instead. This means that in today's globalised world there are no 'safe' bets. Political risk affects companies and organisations of all sizes, operating everywhere from London to Lahore, even if they don't know it.

Political Risk investigates and analyses this shifting landscape, suggests what businesses can do to navigate it, and explains how all of us can better understand these rapidly changing geopolitical dynamics.

'Smart. Informative. Overdue. Will completely change the way you think about political risk' -- Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google and Alphabet, Inc.

Clearly written and timely, this book will interest not only current and future business executives but also would-be-whistle-blowers and corporate watchdogs * Publishers Weekly *
