Contemporary Security Policy is an active peer-reviewed academic journal published five times a year by Taylor & Francis. Launched in 1980 as Arms Control, it acquired its current name in 1994, and publishes theoretical research on policy challenges around armed conflict, defense strategy, intervention and resolution.
Each issue features original articles on policy analysis, new analytical approaches, iconoclastic interpretations and previously overlooked perspectives on security challenges in Europe, Africa, the Middle-East and Asia. It also includes relevant book reviews, with occasional special-focus issues dedicated to topics of current interest. Published works cover a number of topics, including conflict resolution, defense policy, peacekeeping, arms control and disarmament, and international security. The journal also awards the Bernard Brodie Prize annually to the author(s) of an outstanding article featured the previous year. The award is named for Dr. Bernard Brodie (1918-1978), author of The Absolute Weapon (1946), Strategy in the Missile Age (1958) and War and Strategy (1973).
The Internet Archive Collection contains microfilm published between 1994 and 2011.
