Cold War Hot Links
These links are to webpages which other people have created and like most things on the net, they run the entire spectrum of political thought and vary greatly in quality. Nonetheless, they do provide web- surfers with some interesting views and information on the Cold War and the National Security State.

Scanned FOIA Anthropology Documents
About this page and what I'm up to.
I'm an anthropologist who is using the Freedom of Information Act, archival sources and interviews to write an historical account of the influences of the Cold War on American anthropology. This is a broad project and examines a variety of interactions between anthropologists and organizations such as the CIA, FBI, NSA, OSS and other governmental agencies. This past year I organized an invited session on "American Anthropology and the National Security State" at the (Nov. 15-20) 1995 meetings of the American Anthropological Association (click here to see titles of papers). One piece of residual slag from this Cold War research is the creation of an index of obituaries of American anthropologists[this currently has some format problems I'm working on fixing], that is available here online.
