David Price in Inside Higher Ed

David H. Price, author of the forthcoming book Anthropological Intelligence: The Deployment and Neglect of American Anthropology in the Second World War, is quoted today in Inside Higher Ed, speaking about about the release of the final report of the American Anthropological Association’s Commission on the Engagement of Anthropology with the U.S. Security and Intelligence Communities. Reporter Scott Jaschik writes, "David H. Price, an anthropology professor at Saint Martin’s
University, in Washington State, is the member of the committee best
known for work criticizing the CIA and the role of anthropologists in
doing harm through their work with the military and intelligence
agencies. But in an interview after the press briefing, Price said that
many anthropologists in World War II worked with the government in ways
he considers ethical. . . . ‘There are different wars” than the one in Iraq today, Price said. “We need to transcend the current disaster.’"
