*Call for Chapters*
*Proposals Submission Deadline:* October 31, 2015*
Full Chapters Due: January 15, 2016
Submission Date: May 15, 2016

International business (IB) has plenty of extant literature, but the
missing component in that literature is how IB is affected by the "hidden
dynamics" of diplomacy, espionage, and geopolitics as these realities are
generally not considered in business operations because they are largely
hidden from public view and understanding. This is particularly important
when considering global hypercompetition and sustainable economics in IB.
This publication will connect these issues with IB and provide some
explanation regarding the importance for business executives and managers
to consider such issues in strategic planning and operations.

The value of this publication is to provide business and government
executives with reference material that can be used in strategic planning
and operations, among other functions such as human resource
management and security. Because there is no extant literature which covers
the effects of diplomacy, espionage, and geopolitics on IB in one source or
publication, this book would be of particular value to executives,
researchers, and graduate
students of IB and related subjects

and undergraduate business students, and scholar-practitioners who need a
