Bringing together contributions from top international experts, Strategy in the Contemporary World, Fourth Edition, provides a comprehensive and insightful introduction that assesses the role of military power in the contemporary world and the future of strategy in light of fast-paced technological change.

Gray analyze the conflicts themselves and the ongoing debates about what can be learned from them. The text incorporates excellent learning features throughout, including readers' guides, key points, questions, text boxes, and suggestions for further reading.
Strategy in the Contemporary World, Fourth Edition, is accompanied by a Companion Website that provides additional case studies and web links for students and PowerPoint-based lecture slides for instructors.
