Book Description :

The essays in this volume analyze war, its strategic characterisitics and its political and social functions, over the past five centuries. The diversity of its themes and the broad perspectives applied to them make the book a work of general history as much as a history of the theory and practice of war from the Renaissance to the present. Makers of Modern Strategy from Machiavelli to the Nuclear Age takes the first part of its title from an earlier collection of essays, published by Princeton University Press in 1943, which became a classic of historical scholarship. Three essays are repinted from the earlier book; four others have been extensively revised. The rest--twenty-two essays--are new. The subjects addressed range from major theorists and political and military leaders to impersonal forces. Machiavelli, Clausewitz, and Marx and Engels are discussed, as are Napoleon, Churchill, and Mao. Other essays trace the interaction of theory and experience over generations--the evolution of American strategy, for instance, or the emergence of revolutionary war in the modern world. Still others analyze the strategy of particular conflicts--the First and Second World Wars--or the relationship between technology, policy, and war in the nuclear age. Whatever its theme, each essay places the specifics of military thought and action in their political, social, and economic environment. Together the contributors have produced a book that reinterprets and illuminates war, one of the most powerful forces in history and one that cannot be controlled in the future without an understanding of its past.

Book Description :

Strategy, the unifying and guiding idea behind complex series of actions aiming to change the distribution of power, seemed to explain the unusual successes of Franklin Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, or Winston Churchill, to name a few. However, strategy as an idea was only mentioned explicitly in military literature. The pursuit of this concept and its great possibilities led to a series of overlaps. Strategy was within strategic studies, strategic studies was within international security, international security was within international relations, international relations were inside political science. It was sociology of action, a fundamental approach to the social sciences that guided this long investigation of strategy. The literature on strategy is silent on anything pertaining to the individual unless that individual is a soldier. Strategic analysis, the more widely used concept, is the process of examining problems with the ultimate aim of solving them. Strategic thought, on the other hand, is a field with more breadth and more depth. It is more theoretical, using higher degrees of abstraction and encompassing research into strategy. Unlike strategic analysis, however, there are no established methods of theory-building. This book is about how certain extraordinary individuals came to make changes and meet great challenges, to show how their methods are available to any of us.

Book Description :

Teaching all strategy, from grand to military, is essential in the preparation of national security professionals and military leaders. The experience of the armed forces in recent wars recommends that those involved with the system of military education seriously study the way strategy is taught. The task is even more imperative because the ambiguous conflicts and the complex geopolitical environment of the future are likely to challenge the community of strategists, civilian as well as military, in ways not seen in the past. In this context, developing the appropriate curriculum and effective methods of teaching strategy will be the responsibility of universities, colleges, and institutions of professional military education. The authors of this compendium ask and answer the central question of how to teach strategy. The findings, insights, and recommendations in this volume are those of professionals who are accomplished in the classroom as well as the crucible of strategy.
