Stanton named editor of Global Security Review

Samuel S. Stanton

Grove City College Professor of Political Science Dr. Samuel S. Stanton has been appointed an associate editor of the journal Global Security Review.

Stanton will serve as an associate editor for the deterrence and foreign policy section of the journal. In addition to selecting and editing submissions about what is shaping American nuclear modernization, nuclear strategy, policy, and operations, Stanton will be writing about the nexus of nuclear modernization and foreign policy.

"Professor Stanton is very well suited to this role,” Dr. Michael Coulter, chair of the Political Science Department, said. “He's been an active participant in academic conferences as a presenter and one who comments on research presented by others – and he's extremely well read in the scholarly works related to deterrence and foreign policy. This role will also enhance his teaching as he'll be engaging with new scholarly work and sharing it with students."

Global Security Review was recently acquired by the National Institute for Deterrence Studies – an organization that provides national security analysis, policy solutions, and deterrence education – and relaunched as a venue for publishing articles related to nuclear deterrence. Stanton is a senior fellow with the Institute.

Stanton’s research focuses on international security issues, ethnic conflict, terrorism/counterterrorism, and South China Sea conflict. He teaches International Relations, Great Power Politics, National Security, African Politics, Asian Politics, and Research Methods. He joined the Grove City College faculty in 2006.
