Student Power: A Collection of Readings.
Schwartz, Edward, Ed.
This anthology brings together a number of essays on the broad subject of "student power." Written by students, leaders in student organizations, or compiled from university commissions that featured extensive student participation, these essays reflect the variety of views, focuses, and rhetorical styles that emerged in the student power movement. The articles are generally directed toward the kind of power students might achieve in colleges and universities rather than toward tactical questions of how to use the power presently in their possession. Some of the proposals recently advanced for student participation in campus governance are presented and several campus confrontations (including the Columbia upheaval) between students and university administrators are examined in considerable detail. The volume is divided into 3 sections: The Arguments for Student Power; Student Power and University Structure; and Case Studies in the Exercise of Student Power. (JS)
