(p.185) Chapter 5 Student, Terrorist, or Patriot?
A Curriculum of Fear

University of Minnesota Press

The fifth chapter looks intimately at the profound effects of an education focused intensely on terrorism, paying careful attention to how the school nurtured students’ fears. Within a racialized economy of fear, students and school staff calibrated their conduct in order to ward off terrorist threats, manage their fears, and express their love for the nation.
