Anthropologists at War. On “Dirty” Usefulness of Social Sciences

The study explores the history of cooperation between anthropologists, army and intelligence since the times of James Cook’s expeditions, through the colonial rivalry between European powers, the First and the Second World Wars, the Cold War, until recent military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan. It analyses and seeks to evaluate the process of defining standards required of anthropologists working in extreme and ethically dubious circumstances. The part devoted to HTS program, which was implemented in Iraq and Afghanistan, shows how data collected by “anthropologists in military uniforms” was used in a technologically advanced way.

Keywords: the history of anthropology, engaged anthropology, the militarization of anthropology, Human Terrain System, war anthropology.
