Journal of the Indian Wars

A free monthly e-letter with exclusive news, interviews, and excerpts.

What is Journal of the Indian Wars?

Journal of the Indian Wars, or JIW was a quarterly publication on the study of the American Indian Wars. Before JIW, no periodical dedicated exclusively to this fascinating topic was available. JIW's focus was on warfare in the United States, Canada, and the Spanish borderlands from 1492 to 1890. Published articles also include personalities, policy, and military technologies. (Unfortunately, the sale of Savas Publishing effectively ended this subscription-based periodical. Its back issue books are still available through Savas Beatie.)

JIW was designed to satisfy both professional and lay readers with original articles of lasting value and a variety of columns of interest, all enhanced with maps and illustrations. JIW's lengthy essays of substance are presented in a fresh and entertaining manner.
