Strategy Connections is proud to work with top publishers in the fields of security studies, international relations, diplomacy, intelligence, military affairs, political economy, and others, to provide executive summaries of the best books in these fields to our subscribers. Our list of partners continues to grow – check back often!
This service was specifically created to help bridge the well-known gap between academic analysis of national security issues and the information needs of practitioners. Solutions to this “gap” usually include recommendations for academics to focus on more policy-relevant scholarship, and some admonishments to practitioners to spend more time reviewing analysis (see this article by a Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, who is currently a Senior Vice President at the Center for Strategic and International Studies).
Strategy Connections offers a different approach: provide a way for practitioners to easily find existing work relevant to their concerns for deeper study. We help practitioners quickly identify those titles, facilitate discussion, as well as expose subscribers to topics and perspectives they may not even be aware of. Each of our summaries includes a “buy now” button for easy purchasing.
If you are a publisher or author and would like to work with us in putting your titles in front of policy makers, planners, and strategists, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
