The Student Internationals. An Analysis of International and Regional Student Organizations. Final Report.
Altbach, Philip G.
The work is a report of a historical study of several international student organizations in their political and educational contexts to learn whether they, in fact, constitute a real student movement on a world scale. After tracing the growth of such organizations as the International Union of Students and the International Student Conference and analyzing the current activities of these groups, the author concluded that no student movement had emerged. Instead the groups often spent time and efforts on issues of the Cold War from either the Russian or the American perspective. Some cooperation was found on an informal scale through such things as conferences and publications, but the major focus of most groups was toward some national view of the world politics and affairs. A special chapter is devoted to the student organizations in the United States. A bibliography is appended. (CWB)
