The Strategeion

The word “strategy” comes from the ancient Greek word strategos meaning a military commander or general. In about 500 BC Athens began to elect ten strategoi to serve for a year as experts and leaders on military and security affairs. The strategoi met and discussed important issues and challenges in a building called The Strategeion.

This journal houses modern thoughts and reflections on strategy. For more, see my recent book The Crux: How Leaders Become Strategists (PublicAffairs, 2022).
