THE CHESSBOARD AND THE WEB Strategies of Connection in a Networked World

by | Read by Jo Anna Perrin

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

An intriguing rethink of strategy in business and politics, this title will captivate listeners, despite a detached delivery from narrator Jo Anna Perrin. Author Anne-Marie Slaughter, former director of the State Department Office of Policy Planning, offers a conceptual framework for global politics conducted in an age when centralized, hierarchical players, such as the U.S. government, can no longer rely on a "chessboard" approach to strategy in the face of networked decentralized players, such as ISIS. Slaughter explains an esoteric subject in a way that feels not only relevant but pressing. That strength overrides Perrin's clear but stiff narration.
