Summary "This is a book on how to think - strategically - about foreign policy, especially American foreign policy. Strategy is about the application of resources to achieve objectives, about the relationship, in thought and action, between ends and means. In the realm of ends this book explores the concept of the national interest and describes how to select objectives that will take advantage of opportunities to promote interests while protecting them against threats at reasonable cost and risk. On the means side it discusses national power and influence, as well as the political, informational, economic, and military instruments of state power."--BOOK JACKET
