Abstract

In Cold War Anthropology: The CIA, The Pentagon and the Growth of Dual Use Anthropology, David H. Price offers a historical account of how the CIA, The Pentagon and the broader US military industrial complex have had a profound influence on the development of US anthropology during the Cold War and into the present day. This dense, readable work outlines and confronts how ethnographic research in the field has been shaped by wider political-economic forces; Joseph Anderson therefore encourages anthropologists to consider and discuss its implications with colleagues and students.
