You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. In locations as disparate as Syria, Mexico, and Ukraine, insurgencies of various sorts continue to unfold. In light of these and other conflicts and crises below the level of major interstate war, the subject of insurgency is a vitally important one for academics and practitioners alike. But how are scholars and policymakers grappling with the subject of insurgencies? What are the most likely or most significant threats that insurgency poses to U.S. security today? And, what more can or should the U.S. Government do to prepare to mitigate the threat of insurgency? Dr. Deni invited his colleague, Dr. Robert Bunker, to discuss Dr. Bunker's latest SSI monograph entitled, "Old and New Forms of Insurgency."

Additionally, on October 1, 2014, we began publishing all SSI and USAWC Press works, to include books and monographs, only in digital format.

The faculty of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) includes a carefully selected mix of men and women with deep experience in military and national security strategy. To provide a venue for their analysis of the challenges and best practices of strategic leadership and to make available to the students and faculty of USAWC and other institutions in the professional military educational system, the Strategic Studies Institute has created the "practitioners' corner."
