the most important academic insights.

The most important foundations for national security and grand strategy are found in the study of international relations and security studies.  These fields provide a variety of models and perspectives to analyze the most important challenges in international politics – which will help you understand the dynamics with a greater deal of strategic context than what is found in daily news stories.  These works deal not only with what is happening, but why it is occurring.
