Understanding Contemporary Strategy provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of modern strategy.

Covering all the main issues in the field, the book explores the major themes through a combination of classical and modern strategic theory, history and current practice. The book is split into three main sections:

Definition and Context : including discussion of the human, technological, intelligence, ethical and grand-strategic dimensionsStrategy in the Geographic Environments: land, sea, air and spaceContemporary Strategic Challenges: terrorism, insurgency and nuclear strategy.

Each chapter presents the reader with a succinct summary of the topic, but also provides a challenging analysis of current issues, supporting students with pedagogical features such as suggested further reading, boxed case studies and study questions.

This book will be essential reading for upper-level students of strategic studies, war studies, military history and international security.
