The editors of the MCU Journal are calling for contributions to a themed issue under the title “Superpower(s).”

The U.S. had played a major role in world politics during the Cold War and after the fall of the Berlin Wall, maintaining superpower status against the U.S.S.R. or standing alone. As the global community enters a new era, we invite scholars to weigh in on the topic superpower status. Will the U.S. remain a superpower? Will a near-peer competitor stand up to take that role? Will we enter a period of multipolarity? Have or will institutions (EU, UN, or nations tied by treaties or trade agreements) serve as functional superpowers?

We are interested in hearing from political scientists, historians, economists, and others who would like to challenge readers in our multi-disciplinary journal to think beyond their specialties. The journal serves both civilian and military audiences, so we are also interested in strategic and operational issues as well.

The MCU Journal is a peer-reviewed, indexed publication produced out of the schoolhouses of the USMC at Quantico, Virginia. Article-length manuscripts should be double-spaced and range from 4,000 to 10,000 words. We are also interested in finding new book reviewers, and we enjoy hearing from scholars willing to write review essays. Junior scholars and advanced graduate students are encouraged to reach out.
