Human Terrain exposes the effort to enlist social scientists in a struggle for the hearts and minds of America's enemies. Facing long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military adopts a controversial new program, Human Terrain Systems, to make cultural awareness a key element of its counterinsurgency strategy. Designed to embed anthropologists and sociologists with combat troops, the program swiftly comes under attack by critics who consider it misguided and unethical to gather intelligence and smooth the way for a kinder, gentler occupation.
