More About the Author

Montgomery 'Mitzy' McFate is an anthropologist who works on defense and national security issues. Currently, she is the Minerva Chair at the US Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Formerly, she was the Senior Social Scientist for the US Army's Human Terrain System, which she helped build from a 'good idea' on PowerPoint to a program with over five hundred employees, 27 teams deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and $151 million dollar a year budget (making it the US government's largest single investment in social science to date). She was also one of the primary contributors to US Army Field Manual 3-24, Counterinsurgency. Dr. McFate received a BA from University of California at Berkeley in Social Sciences, a PhD in Anthropology from Yale University, and a JD from Harvard Law School. The New Yorker described her as having "an air of humorous cool" and Wired Magazine called her one of the top ten people in the US that President Obama should listen to. "Social Science Goes to War" is her first book, but probably not her last.
