"Even more important, a grand strategy provides a conceptual platform for a broad, vigorous, and informed public debate about the United States’ role in the world, one based on a rich and inclusive discussion of basic principles and that goes beyond the ad hoc, reactive analysis of day-to-day policy decisions," writes University Professor James Steinberg and co-author Francis J. Gavin. "A grand strategy allows an administration to articulate an overarching framework, and that articulation lets the public participate meaningfully in the decision about where to steer the ship of state and how best to get there." Their article, "The Vision Thing: Is Grand Strategy Dead?," was published in Foreign Affairs. 07/23/20
