Reading Lists

Reading is an indispensable element of membership in the profession of arms, and indeed for all national security practitioners. It provokes us to think outside of the day-to-day duties that often absorb us. It allows us to develop an understanding of the larger context of our profession—national policy, strategic cultures, military strategy, and societal issues—which impacts on the training for, and conduct of, military operations and wider national security affairs. Reading also provides the practitioner with an excellent opportunity for vicarious learning, through studying the “breadth and depth” of our profession.
