Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Edward N. Luttwak for a conversation on his new book, "The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire." Luttwak discusses the logic of the strategy; the distinctive features of Byzantine strategy with its balance of diplomacy, intelligence, and military power; the institutional and ideological foundations that account for the eight hundred year survival of Byzantium, and the implications of this record for other great powers with diminished resources confronting many adversaries. The conversation concludes with a comparison of Rome, Byzantium, and the United States. (#17979)
