Rubinstein presents to 10th Sustainment Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army at Fort Drum
Robert A. Rubinstein, professor of anthropology and international relations in the Maxwell School, made a presentation on culture and conflict management to the 10th Sustainment Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army at Fort Drum on July 20. Rubinstein’s presentation was part of the Brigade’s preparation for deployment to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
