Roundtables are where we get to hear from multiple experts on either a subject matter or a recently published book. These collections of essays allow for detailed debates and discussions from a variety of viewpoints so that we can deeply explore a given topic or book.

In this roundtable, our contributors review Mira Rapp-Hooper’s book “Shields of the Republic,” which looks at America’s alliances — past, present, and future.

In this roundtable, our contributors review Daniel Byman’s book “Road Warriors: Foreign Fighters in the Armies of Jihad,” which provides a sweeping history of jihadist foreign fighters from Afghanistan in the 1980s to the civil war in Syria.

In this book review roundtable, our reviewers discuss Martyn Frampton’s “The Muslim Brotherhood and the West,” in which Frampton gives a comprehensive history of the organization through the lens of the West.

In this roundtable, our contributors review Brendan Rittenhouse Green’s book “The Revolution that Failed,” which questions the conventional wisdom on nuclear deterrence.

In this book review roundtable, our contributors reviewed Mona Siegel’s book “Peace on Our Terms,” which examines the fight for women’s rights during the hopeful and uncertain years following the end of World War I.

We brought together a team of experts to discuss the role of the military in mass protests in Africa over the last several years and its involvement in the process of democratization.

In this roundtable, our contributors review H.R. McMaster’s book “Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World.” They explore the implications of McMaster’s core arguments for U.S. national security policy, the future of conservative national security policy, and American civil-military relations.

In this book review roundtable, we asked a group of scholars and practitioners to review Richard Abel’s two-volume work, “Law’s Wars” and “Law’s Trials,” which looks at how the rule of law and America’s legal institutions fared in the “War on Terror.”

This policy roundtable looks at the role of gender and gendered analysis in conflict and security. The authors highlight ways in which gender intersects with political violence and security policy. As the chair observes, the analysis, “defies efforts to make gender a problem of ideology or an issue best relegated to the human resources department.”
