Author(s): John Lewis Gaddis
A master class in strategic thinking, distilled from the legendary Yale course co-taught by the author for decades
For almost two decades, Yale students have competed for admission each year to the "Studies in Grand Strategy" seminar taught by John Lewis Gaddis, Paul Kennedy, and Charles Hill. Its purpose has been to prepare future leaders for responsibilities they will face, through lessons drawn from history and the classics. Now, Pulitzer-Prize winning historian Gaddis has distilled that teaching into a succinct, sharp, and transformational book, surveying statecraft from Xerxes of Persia to Franklin D. Roosevelt and beyond. On Grand Strategy is an unforgettable expert guide to the art of leadership.
