R U S I Journal - June 2000 An excellent and necessary textbook for the international relations student. THES, February 2000 The Book is a dazzling accomplishment. The Washington,Times March 2000 Modern Strategy is a major contribution to our understanding of strategic theory and practice. The Washington Times, March 2000 Over the years, no writer has addressed the topic of strategy more comprehensively or systematically than Colin Gray. The Washington Times, March 2000 Modern Strategy is his finest effort to date. The Washington Times, March 2000 `Gray has been writing about, professing, or "practicing" strategy for thirty years, and whether or not you agree with him, he is among the few scholars of strategy who should never be ignored.' Mark T. Clark Director, National Security Studies, California State University. Naval War College Review, Spring 2000 `...his thesis is worth understanding; modern strategy (indeed all) strategy is still a subject worth studying. Anyone interested in learning more about it will benefit from his work.' Mark T. Clark Director, National Security. Naval War College Review, Spring 2000 "The material is so rich in allusion and reference...the approach so novel, the insights often so extraordinary...there are many "brilliant pebbles" of wisdom and insight" Naval Review, April 2001 Covers so much ground...masterfully sets out the relationship between politics, ethics and strategy....Gray's critique is considered and he always draws what is best from the theories he rejects....a dazzlingly brilliant guide to a wide range of issues...Gray writes from the perspective of an insider in the western military establishment, but even its critics will be informed, entertained and provoked by this book." Royal Institute of International Affairs, Vol 76, October 2000 'This is an outstanding contribution to strategic studies, a comprehensive placing of virtually all theorists and historians of war and strategy and is hugely thought-provoking.'
