Women in Combat:

I'm delighted to say that this week, and then the week after next, we'll have guest-bloggers blogging about women in combat.

The first, who starts today, will be Prof. Kingsley Browne of Wayne State University Law School, who is the author of the just-released Co-ed Combat: The New Evidence that Women Shouldn't Fight the Nation's Wars. The second, scheduled for the week of Dec. 17, will be Capt. (& Prof.) Rosemary Mariner of the University of Tennessee's Center for the Study of War & Society; Prof. Mariner will be arguing in favor of allowing women in combat. I much look forward to what should be a thoughtful, enlightening, and important discussion.
