In his new book, Strategy and Peace, Vice Admiral Sanfelice illustrates the ways in which nations must strategize to maintain peace within the international community. Drawing on his extensive experience in strategic theory, he presents an in-depth study of how policies followed by nation states can advance their country’s aims and create an environment for cooperation and stability. By focusing on the relationship between goals and means, he argues that strategic theory can help maintain peace and promote human flourishing.
