These essays on strategy, war, and statecraft have been written during the current reassessment of United States' national strategy. But they also take strategic thinking back to certain principals and interests which have guided America before, during, and after the Cold War. Co-published with The Institute for Public Policy.

This is a well-conceived, well-written book, which informs not only the specialist but also will be very useful as a student text.--E. Goldstein, University of Birmingham, UK
