ANTHROPOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE

The following is a list of the articles on Anthropological Intelligence: The Deployment and Neglect of American Anthropology in the Second World War (David H. Price, 2008), that were published during the Fall semester of the 2015-2016 academic year, in the order in which they were published online. Reviews were presented chapter by chapter (in the same order as they appear in the book), rather than the volume as a whole, especially given the empirical density of each chapter. Two chapters, however, were not written about.

  1. Fourth Book, Fall 2015: ANTHROPOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE
  2. Questioning Anthropology in WWI to Set the Stage for WWII and Beyond
  3. A varied and (almost) uncritical involvement in the war effort (review of Chapter 2)
  4. The War on Campus – David H. Price
  5. ‘Anthropology As A War Weapon’: The Instrumentalization of Anthropological Knowledge During WWII (Review of Chapter 5)
  6. Keeping the Home Fires Burning: Anthropology Goes to the White House
  7. Who’s the Nazi? The Complicity of US Anthropologists in WWII Internment Camps
  8. Situating David Price in the Analysis of the Power – Knowledge Production Nexus
  9. The ritual cleansing of anthropology using the Freedom of Information Act
  10. The “noble war” narrative and the problem with focusing on personal moral choices (review of ch. 11)
