Classics of Strategy and Diplomacy

The Classics of Strategy and Diplomacy is a project designed to encourage the study of those books, memoirs, essays, speeches, and documents that best illuminate the nature of international politics and strategic affairs. The Classics website provides the central resource base for this activity, and links together an informal consortium of academic institutions and scholars under the administrative auspices of the Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs at Ashland University. The project is coordinated by Dr. Patrick J. Garrity, Miller Center of Public Affairs, the University of Virginia.

“One of the most historically significant efforts to encapsulate lessons from irregular wars, or ‘small wars,’ comes from the pen of British officer C. E. Callwell.”
