It has been a long-standing issue in the humanities as to whether history exists in sheer antitheoretical realm or is congenial to study in theoretical way. Recent studies on military history and national security have nevertheless set to an ideational journey bound for substantiate their empirical findings under the framework of “strategic culture”. This article provides a critique on selected literature of strategic culture and studies with strategic culture-like notion in both the China and non-China fields over the past decade. Scholarly works on human violence, cultural realism, organizational culture, enduring rivalry as well as norms and identity in national security, as the inscape of strategic culture studies, receive particular attention. The critique demonstrates the endeavours of students from military studies to transcend the parochialism of “rational choice”, opening up an exhilarating vista for further reflection and debate.
