Re: Kelanic on Martel, 'Grand Strategy in Theory and Practice: The Need for an Effective American Foreign Policy'

William C. Martel's Grand Strategy in Theory and Practice appears to assume that the United States needs a grand strategy, and Rosemary A. Kelanic's review does not question that assumption. It should be questioned. The United States does not need a grand strategy, and indeed will be much better off without one, at least in the near future.
