“Unless we have a well-educated people, we’re vulnerable on our national security.”— Mark Hatfield.
This is the first post on this blog dedicated to all aspects of Grand Strategy. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more.
On April 8, 2009, Peter Feaver from FP magazine, defined Grand Strategy as “a term of art from academia, which refers to the collection of plans and policies that comprise the state’s deliberate effort to harness political, military, diplomatic, and economic tools together to advance that state’s national interest.”
Therefore, Grand Strategy is about all of the elements the state uses to advance its interests; a fascinating, scientific-political set of fields of study, i.e. comparative politics, security, international relations, environment, economics, war studies, etc. make all part of it.
