Charles Hill, Distinguished Fellow of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, co-teaches the “Studies in Grand Strategy” year-long seminar. A career foreign service officer, Mr. Hill was a senior adviser to George Shultz and Henry Kissinger, as well as to Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the sixth Secretary-General of the United Nations. Yale University Press published his book Grand Strategies: Literature, Statecraft, and World Order in June 2010. His book, Trial of a Thousand Years: World Order and Islamism, was published in 2011 by The Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University. He is currently working on a manuscript tentatively titled The Importance of Untenable Theories in World Affairs. Each year for six consecutive years he has taught a new course on a different Grand Strategy-related idea; in 2013 this was a seminar on “Aristotelian Statecraft.”
