An international expert presents an analysis of why and how nations make business decisions while demonstrating how the U.S. can best act in its own interests, revealing how the examples of Saddam Hussein and Fidel Castro can inform us about North Korea's Kim Jong-Il, the role America should take in strengthening China's economy, and the importance of acting in Saudi Arabia before it is broken apart. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
