"Colin Gray has established himself as a unique commentator on the current strategic scene. He is a strategic thinker who, as Clausewitz suggests, keeps himself firmly grounded in the laboratory of history. What he has to say is of real relevance to policymakers, academics, and those concerned with where American defense policy must go in the new emerging world."—Williamson Murray, author of German Military Effectiveness
