  2. John Lewis Gaddis, “On Grand Strategy”

    John Lewis Gaddis discusses his book, "On Grand Strategy", at Politics and Prose at the Wharf on 5/7/18.

    Featuring the insight, wit, and mastery that won him a Pulitzer for his biography of George Kennan, Gaddis presents a history of grand strategy from the ancient Greeks to the 20th-century’s world leaders, discussing in depth the theory and practice of figures including Herodotus, Sun Tzu, Octavian, St. Augustine, Machiavelli, Elizabeth I, Philip II, the American Founding Fathers, Clausewitz, Tolstoy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Isaiah Berlin, and many more. One of today’s leading academic historians, Gaddis, Robert A. Lovett Professor of History at Yale, synthesized his popular course on the Cold War into the definitive The Cold War: A New History. In his new book he does the same with the seminar on “Studies in Grand Strategy” that he’s co-taught for nearly forty years.
