Details

The second edition of Strategic Studies: A Reader brings together key essays on strategic theory by some of the leading contributors to the field. This revised volume contains several new essays and updated introductions to each section.

The volume comprises hard-to-find classics in the field as well as the latest scholarship. The aim is to provide students with a wide-ranging survey of the key issues in strategic studies, and to provide an introduction to the main ideas and themes in the field. The book contains six extensive sections, each of which is prefaced by a short introductory essay:

The Uses of Strategic Theory

Interpretation of the Classics

Instruments of War, Intelligence and Deception

Nuclear Strategy

Irregular Warfare and Small Wars

Future Warfare, Future Strategy

Overall, this volume strikes a balance between theoretical works, which seek to discover generalisations about the nature of modern strategy, and case studies, which attempt to ground the study of strategy in the realities of modern war.

This new edition will be essential reading for all students of strategic studies, security studies, military history and war studies, as well as for professional military college students.
