Pentagon officially begins project ‘Minerva’
Wired magazine has just reported that the Pentagon has kicked off ‘Minerva’, its project to include social scientists and other academics into the “War on Terror”. The article also mentions the debate that has been going on in anthropology over the US military’s new-found enthusiasm for culture and social science methods.
Wired also has covered this issue in surprising detail, and there is a good archive of related stories at the bottom of their article.
