An essay by Catherine Besteman, the Francis F. Bartlett and Ruth K. Bartlett Professor of Anthropology, appeared in Artforum, an international magazine focusing on contemporary art. The article, “Profiteer Motive,” looks at an international militarization system that is the subject of Besteman’s newest book, Militarized Global Apartheid. “Militarism—the ongoing investment of massive sums in technology and personnel ready to perpetrate violence—is the support structure for capitalism, facilitating the relentless search for profit through dispossession, labor exploitation, and resource extraction,” she writes.
