The Grand Strategy That Won the Cold War: Architecture of Triumph

The Grand Strategy That Won the Cold War: Architecture of Triumph follows the paths of the two fathers of the discipline of history, Herodotus and Thucydides. Like Herodotus, it revives the memory of great men and great achievements. President Ronald Reagan and the National Security Council staff team that developed and implemented the strategic plan that defeated the Soviet Union have never received the recognition they deserved for that achievement. This book helps to set the record straight. Like Thucydides, it analyzes history in order to provide guidance for future statesmen. Since the 9/11 attacks, numerous critics have lamented the inability of the United States to develop a coherent grand strategy and coordinate the use of all the instruments of national power. But the Reagan Administration did exactly that. The text's three editors will discuss the book from the historical and strategy perspectives.
