The Emerging Sub-field of Comparative Grand Strategy

(p.284) 13 Conclusion
Comparative Grand Strategy

Norrin Ripsman

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter is divided into five sections. The first section considers several methodological challenges that complicate the mission of comparative GS analysis and, consequently, probes the limits of this exercise. The next three sections examine the aggregate insights of the volume regarding: (1) the sources of GS in the states examined in the volume; (2) the range of goals that states pursue with their GSs; and (3) the tools that states use to promote their geostrategic goals. The final section evaluates additional insights suggested by this comparative exercise and explore avenues for inquiry.
