Abstract : In this issue our feature article discusses the evolution of--and justification for--the Air Force Academy's newest academic major: Military & Strategic Studies, an appropriate topic to launch the department's redesigned journal. Professor and Department Head, Colonel Tom Drohan, and co-author Associate Professor, Lt Colonel Steve Pomeroy, make their case for the evolution of MSS as crucial for the development of Air Force strategic thinkers. Following their lead, we move on to our topical focus of the month: Interagency Operations, featuring two articles authored by cadet scholars- -including Hal Schmidt, top graduate of the class of 2011. Our regional focus this month is Africa, where cadet scholar authors discuss two leading concerns of AFRICOM: Chinese competition on the African continent, and the impact of the Arab Spring on Libya. Our cadet scholars published herein wrote for MSS 400S, Joint and Coalition Operations, demonstrating the result of departmental efforts to develop strategic thinkers.
