Kramer emphasizes the similarities in American and European nationalist thought, showing how European ideas about land, history, and national destiny flourished in the United States while American ideas about national independence and political rights reappeared among European nationalists and also influenced the rise of anticolonial nationalisms in twentieth-century Asia and Africa.

Future research may also consider answering other questions about how human behaviors are shaped by shocks, both large and small, that are suited to the method of linking government records and matching treated subjects to comparable untreated ones.
The series captures the thoughts of a number of the leading thinkers of our time regarding the impact of this dramatic attack on various domestic institutions and international and security policies.

To test the hypotheses, I relied on four dependent variables: i participation in federal elections, ii participation in political party primaries, iii campaign contributions, and iv party affiliation. The method used to demonstrate these findings leverages the random nature of the terrorist attack to estimate a causal effect and exploits new techniques to link multiple, individual-level, governmental databases to measure behavioral change without relying on surveys or aggregate analysis. Whether it is Gurr and Coleman's third wave of vulnerability or Rapoport's fourth wave of terrorism, contemporary terrorism is a significant departure from the phenomenon even as recently as during the Cold War.
