My academic writings explore how political and strategic theory works in practice. I wrote my first academic book on military logistics, the most practical aspect of waging war. In other books, I draw on my long-standing interest in China to explore the ongoing rise of the People’s Republic. I have authored eight academic books, co-authored a ninth, co-edited a three-volume series on contemporary China and published many shorter pieces.
For those seeking a quick introduction to my scholarship, several of my articles are available free online from Parameters, the journal of the US Army War College.
