The maxims are grouped according to five clusters. "War and Peace" tackles the larger issues of strategic history that drive the demand for the services of strategic thought and practice. "Strategy" presses further, into the realm of strategic behavior, and serves as a bridge between the political focus of part one and the military concerns that follow. In "Military Power and Warfare," Gray turns to the pragmatic business of military performance: operations, tactics, and logistics. Part four, "Security and Insecurity," examines why strategy is important, including a discussion of the nature, dynamic character, and functioning of world politics. Finally, "History and the Future" is meant to help strategists better understand the processes of historical change.
