    Inhaltsangabe

    A master class in strategic thinking, distilled from the legendary program the author has co-taught at Yale for decades.

    For over 20 years, a select group of Yale undergraduates has been admitted into the year-long "Grand Strategy" seminar team-taught by John Lewis Gaddis and Paul Kennedy. Its purpose: to provide a grounding in strategic decision-making in the face of crisis to prepare future American leaders for important work. Now, John Lewis Gaddis has transposed the experience of that course into a wonderfully succinct, lucid and inspirational book, a view from the commanding heights of statesmanship across the landscape of world history from the ancient Greeks to Lincoln, and beyond. A thrilling experience for history lovers and a necessary one for anyone serious about the art of leadership, On Grand Strategy is the very definition of a master class.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “[T]he best education in grand strategy available in a single volume . . . a long walk with a single, delightful mind . . . On Grand Strategy is a book that should be read by every American leader or would-be leader.” (John Nagl, Wall Street Journal

    “A remarkably erudite volume…[that] renders nuanced verdicts on an eclectic cohort of thinkers, writers, monarchs and conquerors…Gaddis has indisputably earned the right to plow different fields of historical inquiry, which he does in On Grand Strategy with self-evident glee and peripatetic curiosity.” (Washington Post

    “Thought-provoking…The approach is highly idiosyncratic and the structure loose; it has something of the feel of a personal manifesto or intellectual memoir.” (Weekly Standard

    training manual for the waste of time

    Pullitzer prize winner, a "training manual for our troubled times" states The Times...not for me:
    this book is a bit boring and the reader doesn't really help, for the waste of time I took the trouble to write these few lines.
    Terrible boring semplification about fox/hedgehog characters throughout history: nothing special, not a lot of inspiration.
    For some historic perspective read Jared Diamond Guns, germs & steel instead!
