Just read this thread (31 pages) and usually post on the 'generations' thread. Currently reading "Modern Strategy" by Colin S. Gray (1999) and "Ethics for a Broken World" by Tim Mulgan (2011). Also reading "The Big Game" by Sandy Schofield (aka Dean Wesley Smith & Kristine Kathryn Rusch) (1993, DS9 #4). I have a list of Cold War books to some extent. The one by John Lewis Gaddis is probably most commonly read. It is about 'containment' and there is an earlier edition and a later edition. Also Richard Smoke's book about nuclear strategy could be interesting too. "The Limits of Coercive Diplomacy" by George et al. is also good if not as relevant perhaps. Just read "Makers of Modern Strategy" (the earlier edition that was edited by Edward Mead Earle rather than Paret).
