Strategy Matters: Essays in Honor of Colin S. Gray

Strategy Matters is a collection of essays written in honor of Colin S. Gray by his students, spanning three decades and three continents. This volume examines a multitude of subjects and topics—all through the strategic lens of Gray and his students. It references Gray’s works in each chapter and reflects on his unique and wide-ranging strategic contributions. Collectively, the essays make the case for why strategy matters and, as Gray himself wrote half a century ago, remains “a necessary field of intellectual endeavor.” [Donovan C.
