Abstract

An article in Science magazine (Bhattacharjee, 2007) discussed how the U.S. military is interested in enlisting the help of multidisciplinary scientific experts to better understand “how local populations behave in a war zone.” The article mentioned the “Human Social Culture Behavior Modeling” (HSBC) program at U.S. Department of Defense and indicated, through a few anecdotal examples, the types of prior research emanating from multidisciplinary fields that may be considered the state of the art.
