Introduction 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.
Objective 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
Target Audience The target audience includes business and government executives, graduate and undergraduate business students, and scholar-practitioners who need a single source regarding the understudied effects of diplomacy, espionage, and geopolitics on international business
