Summary

The ongoing battle for hearts and minds in Iraq and Afghanistan is a military strategy inspired originally by efforts at domestic social control and counter insurgency in the US. Price here documents how anthropological knowledge and methods are harnessed by military and intelligence agencies in post 9/11 America to placate hostile foreign populations. He outlines the ethical implications of appropriating this traditional academic discourse for use by embedded, militarised research teams.
