The probability that a political action could significantly impact a company's business is affecting more businesses in more ways than ever before. Political risk stems from a widening array of actors, including Twitter users, local officials, activists, terrorists, hackers, and more. Rice and Zegart analyze the evolving landscape of political risk, explain what businesses can do to navigate it, and what all of us must learn to better understand and grapple with these rapidly changing global political dynamics. -- adapted from jacket.

Golly, I certainly look forward to reading this book, if there's anyone who should be familiar and expert on political risk, it is Condoleezza Rice!
After all, didn't she claim that // nobody could have forseen 9/11 \\ after numerous others had predicted it? Remember the FBI agent, Mr. Williams, from Arizona who warned FBI HQ that the Arab students there were training // as if they were planning on flying into the World Trade Center Towers\\? And an excellent 1997 fictional book written by a British expatriate author living in the south of France, detailing how hijacked planes would be flown into NYC skyscrapers?
And, in fact, a 1996 terrorist/counterterrorist simulation created at the Pentagon, detailing how terrorists would hijack and crash airliners into Wall Street, the Pentagon and the White House. And what a coincidence, one of those planners, a career US Navy type, would retire and become the command pilot of the fateful Flight 77 which would crash into the Pentagon! And aboard that Flight 77 would be a physicist from the Naval Surface Warfare Center who, the previous year, researched the most effective way to sabotage and destroy city skyscrapers? And an attorney lady aboard who was involved with the partner of her law firm, a partner possessing an interesting background, including that he had been one of the // investigators \\ into the strange explosion of Flight 800?!?! And another lady, Mrs. Olson, Solicitor General Ted Olson's third wife, who had been in charge of that // hanging chad operation \\ for the Bush campaign during the 2000 presidential election. [Strange, it almost appears fortuitous that people with such knowledge would perish that day?!?!? Ted's on his fourth wife now, so no need to be concerned!]
Also, most bizarre that an audit group, the Financial Management staff with the Defense Intelligence Agency, would receive a 2:00am email to an emergency morning meeting at the Pentagon's west wall, where most of them would be killed, with a few seriously injured, by the crashing into them by Flight 77? The same audit group which had just uncovered the fact of unaccounted for $2.3 trillion in missing funds?
