About the Author

Colin S. Gray is Director of the Centre for Strategic Studies within the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Reading. He has served as a Defence Advisor to both UK and US governments and is the author of 23 books on military history and strategic studies, as well as numerous academic articles.


"In an era of strategic atrophy when we're wrestling with a world awash in change, The Future of Strategy provides the best and most relevant guide to navigate our way. Using enduring principles Colin Gray lights the path ahead in a book that stands alone in its clarity and strategic insight." James N. Mattis, Hoover Institution, Stanford University "Colin S Gray is one of the great strategic thinkers of the day. In The Future of Strategy he argues that there is a general theory of strategy that applies to all times, places and circumstances. Insightful and controversial, it is a must-read for all students of strategic studies and policy makers who wrestle with the difficult strategic issues of the contemporary world." John Baylis, Emeritus Professor, Swansea University
