About the Author

Tom Durwood is a teacher, writer and editor with an interest in history. Tom most recently taught English Composition and Empire and Literature at Valley Forge Military College, where he won the Teacher of the Year Award five times. Tom has taught Public Speaking and Basic Communications as guest lecturer for the Naval Special Warfare Development Group at the Dam's Neck Annex of the Naval War College. Tom is editor of an online scholarly journal, The Journal of Empire Studies ( Peter Suber, Berkman Fellow at Harvard University, an advocate of the open access movement, praises the journal as a new opportunity for overcoming access barriers to knowledge and research. Dr. Julian Fisher of Scholarly Exchange has also applauded Tom's efforts. Creating valuable academic content and then hiding it behind financial firewalls - the traditional scholarly publishing model - runs counter to the essence of scholarship, learning and sharing, according to Fisher. To see a journal such as the Journal of Empire Studies breaking that mold is exciting. Tom's newspaper column Shelter appeared in the North County Times for seven years. Tom earned a Masters in English Literature in San Diego, where he also served as Executive Director of San Diego Habitat for Humanity. Tom earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard, where he edited an undergraduate arts journal and studied with David McClelland (Roots of Consciousness).
