Part of the Insights: Critical Thinking on International Affairs series

Political risk now affects more markets and countries than ever before and that risk will continue to rise.

But traditional methods of managing political risk are no longer legitimate or effective. In Tectonic Politics, Nigel Gould-Davies explores the complex, shifting landscape of political risk and how to navigate it.

He analyses trends in each form of political risk: the power to destroy, seize, regulate, and tax.

He shows how each of these forms reflects a deeper transformation of the global political economy that is reordering the relationship between power, wealth, and values.

In a world where everything is political, the craft of engagement is as important as the science of production and the art of the deal.

The successful company must integrate that craft-the engager's way of seeing and doing-into strategy and culture. Drawing on a career in academia, business, and diplomacy, Gould-Davies provides corporate leaders, scholars, and engaged citizens with a groundbreaking study of the fastest-rising political risk today. "As tectonic plates shape the earth," he writes, "so tectonic politics forges its governance".
