We are USSOCOM’s “go-to” publisher for research of interest to the special operations forces community. We pride ourselves on our unique ability to put knowledge into the hands of SOF professionals, and we aim to inform national policy & strategy with quality research. Since our inception in 2004, we have edited and published over 200 peer-reviewed scholarly monographs, edited volumes, reference manuals, journal articles, and papers by more than 200 authors at the cutting-edge of SOF research.
