This chapter considers how the various forces are likely to play out in the near and somewhat more distant future, especially given the events of September 11. It picks up the thread of the introduction to ask: Is there some higher unity in all this? What vision of the American state, civil society and culture emerges from these reflections? Ultimately, what kind of people is America revealed to be? And, given the impact of September 11, how does a global threat alter or vindicate the analysis of this book?

Keywords: September 11; higher unity; American state; civil society; culture; global threat
