Review

The Chessboard and the Web presents a brilliantly imaginative vision of world politics for the age of the Internet and social media, informed by the author s career in government as well as her scholarship. Robert O. Keohane, Professorof Public and International Affairs, Princeton University--Robert O. Keohane"

Slaughter s book applies well beyond the field of foreign policy. It speaks directly to the needs of global business to rethink the architecture and culture of their business models, organizations and strategies. Tom Pritzker, Executive Chairman Hyatt Hotels Corp.--Tom Pritzker"

Perfectly timed, thoughtfully argued, and utterly convincing on the nature, complexity, and criticality of the networks essential to success in today s environment. Soon to be a dog-eared, heavily underlined guide used by our most effective leaders. Gen. (Ret.) Stan McChrystal--Stan McChrystal"

"Networks are becoming more important and deserve more attention in both the theory and practice of foreign policy. Slaughter's exposition is masterful and succinct. This book will command attention, not only because of her scholarship but also because of her reputation and experience."--Joseph S. Nye Jr., author of Soft Power and Is the American Century Over?--Joseph S. Nye Jr.

"The Chessboard and the Web presents a brilliantly imaginative vision of world politics for the age of the Internet and social media, informed by the author's career in government as well as her scholarship."--Robert O. Keohane, Professor of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University--Robert O. Keohane

"A profound and insightful view of geopolitics from one of the greatest living foreign policy thinkers. This book should be required reading for any student or practitioner of international relations. It will only become more relevant and prescient over time."--Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Alphabet Inc.--Eric Schmidt

"Must reading for policymakers and citizens alike. Anne-Marie Slaughter has taken on the enormous task of rethinking grand strategy in an interconnected world where government is but one of the key players. There is little doubt that an Open Order world would be more prosperous and safer. The Chessboard and the Web launches an important conversation on how to get there."-- Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice--Condoleezza Rice

"Slaughter's book applies well beyond the field of foreign policy. It speaks directly to the needs of global business to rethink the architecture and culture of their business models, organizations and strategies."--Tom Pritzker, Executive Chairman Hyatt Hotels Corp. --Tom Pritzker

"Perfectly timed, thoughtfully argued, and utterly convincing on the nature, complexity, and criticality of the networks essential to success in today's environment. Soon to be a dog-eared, heavily underlined guide used by our most effective leaders."--Gen. (Ret.) Stan McChrystal--Stan McChrystal

"I am not interested in critiquing the president's moves or motives at the moment. What I am interested in is a pragmatic and progressive worldview, and ideas that will help bring about lasting peace and stability. And Anne-Marie Slaughter's new book, The Chessboard and the Web, offers it."--Dylan Schleicher, 800-CEO-READ, Editor's Choice--Dylan Schleicher "800-CEO-READ "
