The International Security Studies Forum (ISSF) promotes scholarly, interdisciplinary discussion on international security studies topics.  We commission reviews and roundtables on new and noteworthy books and journal articles, as well as state of the field essays by leading scholars.

ISSF is produced by H-Diplo, the Diplomatic and International History discussion network (member H-Net: Humanities & Social Sciences Online) in association with the Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University.

Funding for ISSF is provided by the (John D. and Catherine T.) MacArthur Foundation.
