The Shaping of Grand Strategy: Policy, Diplomacy and War

The Shaping of Grand Strategy: Policy, Diplomacy, and War by Williamson Murray, Richard Hart Sinnreich and James Lacey (Ed.)

Just received this review copy courtesy of Nicole at Cambridge University Press. 

The authors contributing chapters also include Colin S. Gray, Marcus Jones, Jeremy Black and John A. Lynn III and the tome has been dedicated to the current combatant commander of CENTCOMGeneral James Mattis, USMC. Thumbing through, it is an academic but not an abstruse book, one equally suitable for serious laymen interested in foriegn policy and military affairs as well as policy wonks, military officers, scholars and students.

The chapters tackle aspects of strategy that are of much interest to ZP readers and I look forward to reviewing The Shaping of Grand Strategy here soon

    Btw, not to nit-pick, but a comment or two of mine have disappeared into the ether. Spam-filter I’m assuming.

    Just a head’s up. No big deal or anything 🙂 It’s not like my comments are Shakespeare and must always survive the spam-filter!

    Checking now, Doc Madhu….Akismet sometimes crunches legitimate comments…….nope, I have found nothing. There may be a connectivity glitch on your end when you commented at that time. Or perhaps here.
