A serious, profound, and well-researched book. --Lucio Caracciolo, LUISS Guido Carli, Rome As the world careers deeper and deeper into unpredictability, John Hulsman reminds us that it is still possible to foresee an uncertain future by learning from the past. Some of history's most famous figures--including Tiberius, Napoleon, and Cesare Borgia--failed the analytical test, while scarce-remembered figures such as the Old Man of the Mountain and Lord Salisbury passed it. Through more than two millennia, Hulsman brings to vivid life the tenets of successful analysis: know your history, and know yourself. --Ben Nimmo, Atlantic Council Digital Forensic Research Lab John Hulsman dares more boldly to tell the 2,500-year journey of political risk management from the Oracle of Delphi to the age of Trump. This lively jaunt through history is a cracking read for all and offers unique insights for those of us who must navigate the uncertainties of political risk. This groundbreaking work is must reading for anyone who hopes to lead through the complexity of today's geopolitics. --Robert H. Kahn, Automated Financial Systems John Hulsman travels across history and culture to illustrate the ten rules for analyzing political risk. He deploys the Roman Empire, Crusades, Vietnam War, and even the Beatles to help business and political leaders avoid disaster in today's increasingly complicated and unstable world. --Doug Bandow, Cato Institute To Dare More Boldly is a monument to Hulsman's vast erudition. In this captivating book, he examines what has gone wrong throughout history and uses those insights to formulate a general set of lessons for those who have to assess political risk--and for all of us to better judge the foreign-policy decisions of our leaders. --Teun van Dongen, Inholland University of Applied Sciences Written by one of political risk's most entertaining, original, and mischievous thinkers, To Dare More Boldly is the ultimate guide to understanding where the world is now and predicting its future. --Tom Welsh, Daily Telegraph Hulsman combines first-rate historical storytelling with extremely sophisticated political analysis--you can actually imagine him sitting in the room with the great strategists of the past. To Dare More Boldly is a brilliant and unusual book that rips up conventional thinking on the major events of world history. --James Frayne, author of Meet the People: Why Businesses Must Engage with Public Opinion to Manage and Enhance Their Reputations A consistently interesting history of political risk analysis.---Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution This is a compelling read, rich in insights and alternately courageous and outrageous.---A. W. Purdue, Times Higher Education
