This article reviews, “ Politics and Strategy: Partisan Ambition and American Statecraft” by Peter Trubowitz, published in 2011 from Princeton University Press, introducing to potential readers some theoretical and methodological strengths and weaknesses of the book. For scholars and experts, especially on U. S. foreign policy issues, the book pushes the boundaries of traditional understanding of country’s grand strategy typology and it rekindles structural incentives arguments of both domestic and international politics by reconstructing the conventional knowledge of international relations. For the general public, the book takes readers on a brief excursion into what scientific research is and how social science research is being conducted in exploring politics.
