Naval War College Review


Colin Gray’s highly engaging book ad- dresses a spectrum of national security considerations that are likely to impact the United States in the coming years. Gray, who is a professor at the Univer- sity of Reading and served for five years in the Ronald Reagan administration, argues that America’s sports-mindedness has culturally prepared Americans to think in terms of winning and losing and of confrontations that have a be- ginning, middle, and end.
