IS 423W examines the theory and practice of grand strategy in an international context using both historical and contemporary case studies. Initial attention is given to classical cases including the Peloponnesian War and Bismarck as grand strategist. Consideration then shifts to an examination of grand strategy in the twentieth century including cases related to the two world wars, the interwar period, and the Cold War. The course concludes with an examination of two case studies of a more contemporary nature. A major research paper is required. Note: IS 423W is jointly-listed as HNL 375W, Studies in Grand Strategy.
