Karen Larson, an anthropology instructor at Gustavus, authored "Culture and Terror," a book about American culture, its relationship with terrorism and how it sometimes creates terrorists from within.

Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fayetteville - America Still in a Post-9/11 Cultural Haze [cached]

Newswise - "Three years after 9/11, America remains in a cultural haze, with more confusion than clarity about how to respond to terrorism-either foreign or domestic," says Karen A. Larson, a cultural anthropologist who holds a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley."Americans, convinced after 9/11 that they and their nation were ā€˜changed forever,' live in an environment where individualism and fear combat impulses toward connected dots and social regeneration."

Government reforms, from the new Department of Homeland Security to the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, are based in the need for cultural change, but without a clear sense of what "culture" is or how to go about changing it.The nation's challenge to reshape its bureaucratic subcultures goes far beyond the familiar "culture wars" of the political left and right.
Larson's recently published book, "Culture and Terror: The Jackal and the Phoenix in America," traces the roots of domestic terrorism, through American cultural responses to 9/11, concluding with a prescription for true reform in American society and national character, both inside and outside of government.An excerpt of the book is available here.
