One of my professors was literally just
on NPR talking about the new Human Terrain Teams
being deployed by the military... the members of which are anthropologists and other social scientists.
This is a very interesting debate going on in anthropology, and has lots of ethical questions surrounding it. My professor was joined by Montgomery McFate, who has caused a fair amount of controversy herself with her involvement in this program.Edit
