This book addresses the operationalization of culture in U.S. military intelligence. It draws from the expertise developed by Dr. Jim Schnell’s 35 years in the military intelligence community, most notably serving as a HUMINT officer in the U.S. Defense Attache System (retiring at the rank of Colonel) and as the Lead Social Scientist, U.S. Army Culture & Foreign Language Office (as a civilian). This practitioner experience is enhanced via his theoretical background in civilian higher education. Schnell’s Ph.D. (Ohio University, 1982) in human communication processes and relevant scholarly publications, focusing on cross-cultural relations, provide ample context for analyzing U.S. military intelligence operations. His work as a Fulbright Scholar and multiple fellowships at the East-West Center (Honolulu) has served to cultivate insights relevant for the civilian academic community and military intelligence professionals. He has held teaching posts at Beijing Jiaotong University, Ohio State University, Royal University of Phnom Penh, University of Cincinnati and Ohio Dominican University.
