Announcing the Institute!
The Institute for the Study of Strategy and Politics has just been approved as a non-profit corporation!
Our purpose is to advance the understanding of history, military strategy, and national security policy. Our intent is publish historical, national security and strategic research and analysis that will educate the public, inform the policy debate, and stimulate discussion among historians and the policy community.
We intend to produce a quarterly journal, for which we will solicit articles. We will distribute this journal electronically and publish it here on this site.
We will host an annual conference on a particular theme of historical or strategic interest, to which we will issue a “call for papers” and invite interested professionals and the general public to attend. The proceedings of the conference will be published.
