The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies presented a book talk on April 20 with Williamson Murray, PhD, Director of the Institute's History, Social and Strategic Ideas Program.  Dr. Murray discussed his book The Shaping of Grand Strategy: Policy, Diplomacy and War (Cambridge University Press, 2011).  The Cambridge University Press says, "Within a variety of historical contexts, The Shaping of Grand Strategy addresses the most important tasks states have confronted: namely, how to protect their citizens against the short-range as well as long-range dangers their polities confront in the present and may confront in the future."  Click below to watch a video of the April 20 book talk.
