Praise for Lawrence Freedman's Strategy: A History

"[Freedman's] books manage to delight the experts yet are still comprehensible to the general reader, a rare skill in this genre. On this occasion, he has produced what is arguably the best book ever written on strategy." --Washington Post

"Magisterial... wide-ranging erudition and densely packed argument."
--The Economist

"This is a book of startling scope, erudition and, more than anything, wisdom." --Financial Times

"Lawrence Freedman shows here why he is justly renowned as one of the world's leading thinkers about strategy, which he defines as the central art of getting more out of a situation than the starting balance of power would suggest." --Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University and author of The Future of Power

"This substantial, comprehensive, hermeneutic work examines the various dimensions and history of "strategy," which Freedman defines as "the art of creating power"...this very ambitious exploration provides readers with a useful introduction to the field of strategic studies." --CHOICE-

"Freedman consistently brings the discussion down to real cases, covering a wide range of history and geography. The final section, which considers the place of gang warfare and civil unrest in many parts of the world and the likely role of China in future conflicts, is especially thought-provoking. The author's lively style adds to the interest for general readers. A valuable book for anyone interested in international affairs."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The one thing that Sir Lawrence is sure of is that predictions of future war rarely get it right. His message to policymakers is to beware those who tout 'the ease and speed with which victory can be achieved while underestimating the resourcefulness of adversaries'. Anybody who thinks otherwise should read this book."
The Economist

"[An] engaging survey of how and why historians and writers--of nonfiction, fiction and film--bravely prognosticate. The theme is scholarly, but the tone is refreshingly popular: Tom Clancy makes the index, but von Clausewitz does not."
Army Times

"The work is extremely well written and an erudite product produced by a renowned military theorist. It should, without reservation, be considered a welcome addition to both the personal library of the more seasoned scholar as well as that of the senior level officer."
Parameters

"Innovative... Readers who spend their time with either tech-driven science fiction or RAND analyses should put them aside for a while and read this thought-provoking book on the power of ideas in shaping the future of grand strategy."
Lawfare

5つ星のうち5.0 Strategy, War and Imagination
2019年10月23日に英国でレビュー済み
Strategy is about attempts to, deliberately and imaginatively, shape the future. History though, as Freedman observes, is equally made by those who know nothing of the future and very often precious little of the past, present or likely consequences of available actions.

Some are better than others but those of slow wit or dubious grasp may shape human history as much as those who blunder from error to disaster to conflict to war to genocide.

This is harsh medicine for those who seek, and see enlightenment, yet to enjoy peace it is better - and necessary - to see the world as it is been, is, and is likely to be.

Human nature is unlikely to change quickly but we can perhaps become a little better at understanding how to protect ourselves from the worst of which our species is capable.
