Summary "Strategy and the National Security Professional is a single-source reference for national security professionals, political appointees in the security realm, and others who participate in the formulation, evaluation, and execution of strategy, in addition to those who study and follow national security debates." "The book does not propose a new strategy or critique current strategy; rather, it offers a perspective and process for disciplined strategic thought in regard to all strategy. It is thorough in its explanation of the nature of the strategic environment, offering a clear and comprehensive theory of strategy and a practical framework for thinking about this environment and formulating effective strategy."--BOOK JACKET
