 Dr. Brian R. Price studies military culture and practices from the ancient period through the modern age, with a special emphasis on the relationship between culture and the use of technology. He holds a BA in International Relations from UCLA where he focused on USSoviet relations and on terrorism. He holds a doctorate from the University of North Texas in military history. He has ten years’ experience as a publisher and eight in the e-commerce and online community segments of the Internet industry, rising in that time to become an executive. From 2011-12 he was deployed to Afghanistan as a senior social scientist, serving as special staff and conducted field research in support of Brigade and Division level commands and conducting 132 combat patrols. He holds a life-long interest in the history of European martial arts and its application to modern combatives, as well as in chivalric culture. He is the co-founder of the Schola Saint George, an international non-profit school of martial arts. His books include Techniques of Medieval Armour Reproduction, The Sword in Two Hands, Teaching and Interpreting Historical Swordsmanship, The Book of the Tournament and Ramon Lull’s Book of Knighthood & Chivalry. His wide range of research interests includes classical warfare, arms and armour, strategy, insurgency and counter-insurgency, expeditionary economics, aviation, military technology, and the American military experience.  
Currently, his research is focused on the history of the American military’s efforts to gain local cultural knowledge and on a study, Eagles, Falcons, Warthogs & Nighthawks: Gen. “Bill” Creech, Col. John Boyd and the Struggle to Remake the Tactical Air Forces in the Wake of Vietnam (Naval Institute Press, 2018). Recently he has also published on counterinsurgency, has a forthcoming article in the Journal of Medieval Military Studies, and is conducting research for the Defense POW-MIA Accounting Agency in Washington, D.C. He is also a Board member for the Pacific Submariner’s Memorial Association, which caretakes the U.S.S. Bowfin and its associated museum at Pearl Harbor.  
Dr. Price came to HPU in the fall of 2012, and he remains a member of the MADMS faculty, offering the foundational military history methods course, elective courses in the American military experience, along with undergraduate core courses in the History, International Studies and Diplomacy and Military Studies series.

 
 Dr. Price has a number of graduate students working on topics that range from medieval to modern history and security policy.
