"Nguyen demonstrates tremendous abilities as a writer that bode well for the quality of intellectual work we can expect from her in the future. A Curriculum of Fear, however, might be a tough act for her to follow."-American Journal of Sociology "A Curriculum of Fear offers unique and engaging insight on the intersections of education, securitization, and militarism in the United States. It makes an important contribution to research in each of these fields."-Emily Gilbert, University of Toronto

"A Curriculum of Fear provides a valuable contribution to the literature on the militarization and corporatization of schools, situating the topic in terms of the broader ideological and economic constellation of neoliberalism and militarism. Nicole Nguyen offers an expansive view that addresses school governance and policy, curriculum and cultural politics, and subjectivity formation."-Kenneth Saltman, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth
