A fascinating primer for the investor, businessman, diplomat, or anyone else with an interest or duty to perform in the world's rapidly emerging 'frontier' nations and markets.

Dimitrijevic presents a solid, practical, and trustworthy guide for those interested in the wide range of opportunities frontier markets, such as Colombia, have to offer.--Álvaro Uribe, former president of Colombia

Informative and engaging. The author intersperses the narrative with case studies rich in anecdotes that reinforce critical concepts.-- "Financial Analysts Journal"
