Biography

David H. Price (born 1960) is an American anthropologist. He studied anthropology at The Evergreen State College, the University of Chicago and the University of Florida (PhD 1993) and is a professor of anthropology at St. Martin's University in Lacey, Washington.

Price has conducted cultural anthropological and archaeological field work in Egypt and elsewhere in the Near East. His primary research area is the history of anthropology along with various interactions between anthropologists and military/intelligence agencies. His 2004 book Threatening Anthropology used tens of thousands of Federal Bureau of Investigation files released under the Freedom of Information Act to examine how the FBI harassed anthropologists that were activists in issues of racial equality during the McCarthy era. His 2008 book Anthropological Intelligence documented American anthropologists’ contributions to the Second World War. He has written journalistic exposés on military uses of anthropology in the Human Terrain System program, and on post-9/11 programs bringing the CIA and other intelligence agencies back on to American university campuses. Much of Price's historical and contemporary writing focuses on the ethical and political context of anthropological practice.

Price is a frequent contributor to CounterPunch, and is a member of the Network of Concerned Anthropologists and Journal of Facebook Post Studies.
