Dr.Payne presents the most cogent review of today's competing nuclear narratives, and his conclusions provide a new framework by which to devise a strategy to achieve a stabilizing deterrence effect.

Reviewed by Dr. Gregory D. Miller
One of the most important strategy scholars of our time, Gray presents a more condensed version of his ideas, therefore making them more accessible to those first engaging in the study of strategy. This book also shows some of the evolution of Gray’s thinking.
We honor the memory of author, scholar, and strategist Dr. Colin S. Gray, one of the original Strategic Studies Quarterly advisers. Few scholars were ever more influential in the theory and practice of strategy, the dialogue between policy and military force, or the value of history for educating policy makers. He will be sorely missed by Air University and Strategic Studies Quarterly.
