Anthropology and the United States Military: Coming of Age in the Twenty-First Century

Pamela R. Frese, Margaret C. Harrell

Anthropology and the United States Military is a fascinating edited collection of ethnographic research that seeks to provide visions of and for US military culture from a solid anthropological base. The volume explores several important but relatively unknown cultural variations in the defense community through a variety of lenses. A strong list of contributors highlight important issues such as: anthrax vaccines, the “Golden Age” culture of the military, gender roles among army spouses, weight control and physical readiness, the military advisor, and the USNA.
