The editors of On Contested Shores: The Evolving Role of Amphibious Operations in the History of Warfare (Marine Corps University Press, 2020) are seeking contributions to a second volume. The second volume will deeper explore the doctrine, training, materiel (weapons and equipment), leadership development (education), personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) needed to theorize, plan for, equip, lead and conduct amphibious operations. With chapters focused on historical case studies, current analysis, and future prescriptions, On Contested Shores II is intended to influence academics and practitioners alike.

The volume is not intended to be by Marines, for Marines, about Marines despite the editors' backgrounds and previous Marine Corps University Press involvement. Rather, we seek a variety of viewpoints, experiences, and interpretations, especially those from non-American nations or contributors.

The editors are looking for 15-18 chapters (of between 4,000 and 6,000 words each) for inclusion in the forthcoming volume. All chapters will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind system by at least two reviewers. (Those unable to submit chapters but interested in serving as peer reviewers are encouraged to contact the editors.) Chapter proposals are due December 31, 2021, and chapters will be due for editing and peer review in July 2022.
