Social Order and the General Theory of Strategy

By Alexander Atkinson
Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1982
244 pp. $17.50
Purchase

A venture into the realm of grand strategy, based on the idea that traditional theory has failed to grasp the fundamental importance of the social order in relation to the use of violence for political ends. The author draws heavily on the writings of Mao Tse-tung, painstakingly collected from scattered sources, and the Chinese revolutionary experience. The text is at times obscure, but the author sees to it, often by repetition, that his points come through.
