David Price in Time Magazine

David Price, author of the forthcoming book Anthropological Intelligence, is interviewed in Time magazine for an article summarizing the controversy over anthropologists cooperating with the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan. Price says, "The intelligence agencies are [seeking social scientists] because they
want to get smarter, to think outside the box, but it is very clear to
me this will just reinforce what the box is. They are trying
to capture their minds before they enter the class, so that they will
already be thinking in agency-like way — so these programs will have
the opposite effect."
