The authors listed below have published posts in the SWJ Blog. See also this separate list of authors published in the SWJ Blog.  We greatly appreciate these authors choosing to share their work to the community through us, and thank them for advancing the dialogue on the complex problems of small wars.

Speaking of complexity, this long list is in alphabetical order by first character of the byline, because that's how we've got the data.  If you're searching for a last name, try your browser's Find On Page search feature or our site search. 

Until our pre-Aug 2011 items areupdated, they will show SWJ Editors as the author due to the limitations of our prior system. You can see the real byline when you open the article.

The SWJ Blog is a multi-author blog powered by a coalition of the —and highly able.  We publish contributed guest posts from across the community, screened by SWJ Editors per our editorial policy.  We publish work we think credibly represents an important view that adds to the dialog, not work that reinforces any particular position.  We tend toward pragmatism but are otherwise agnostic of any particular platform; we host a neutral and open tent for serious thought and discussion, not a forum for advocacy.

We also offer a few regular contributors an outlet for their work as SWJ Bloggers. They are free to post what and when they want, without editorial direction or interference. Through their years of professional achievement, they've shown us they merit our trust and this vehicle for their thoughts. By pooling together, we achieve enough volume to keep things fresh for our readers, and we gain other synergies from the huge mountain of talent. But individual contributors are, in essence, writing their own blogs.

The current SWJ Bloggers, in alphabetical order are:  Crispin Burke, Robert Bunker, Robert Haddick, Dave Kilcullen, Malcolm Nance, John Sullivan.
