The Street Fighters True muscle cars make no apologies. They had one primary job: get the driver from Point A to Point B as fast as law, and the driver's driving ability, would allow. They started off in the early 1960s as mid-size sedans and coupes stuffed with oversized engines - Bel Airs, Catalinas, and Tempests - and it wasn't long before crazy hi-po machines came in all shapes in sizes. Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers, Chevelles, 4-4-2s, Gran Sports ... they all had one thing in common: big engines, and big performance. In Nothin' But Muscle, you'll find 199 of the greatest American performance cars ever built. From the earliest 1964 GTO, to the Shelby-built muscle/racers of the late-â€˜60s, to the ferocious Buicks of the 1980s and 500-plus-hp Viper and Corvette rocketships of today. Nothin' But Muscle brings you the most memorable and beloved pavement eaters ever seen on American soil.
How Businesses and Organizations Can Anticipate Global Insecurity

From New York Times bestselling author and former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and Stanford University professor Amy B. Zegart comes an examination of the rapidly evolving state of political risk, and how to navigate it. The world is changing fast. Political risk-the probability that a political action could significantly impact a company's business-is affecting more businesses in more ways than ever before. A generation ago, political risk mostly involved a handful of industries dealing with governments in a few frontier markets. Today, political risk stems from a widening array of actors, including Twitter users, local officials, activists, terrorists, hackers, and more. The very institutions and laws that were supposed to reduce business uncertainty and risk are often having the opposite effect. In today's globalized world, there are no "safe" bets. POLITICAL RISK investigates and analyzes this evolving landscape, what businesses can do to navigate it, and what all of us can learn about how to better understand and grapple with these rapidly changing global political dynamics. Drawing on lessons from the successes and failures of companies across multiple industries as well as examples from aircraft carrier operations, NASA missions, and other unusual places, POLITICAL RISK offers a first-of-its-kind framework that can be deployed in any organization, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. Organizations that take a serious, systematic approach to political risk management are likely to be surprised less often and recover better. Companies that don't get these basics right are more likely to get blindsided.
Explores the business history of three major independent American automakers-Nash Motor Company, the Hudson Motor Car Company, and the American Motors Company-that faced fierce competition from the "Big Three."
