No Time for Youth--Growth and Constraint in College Students. Student Life and Its Problems.
Katz, Joseph; And Others
Chapter Seven, by Marjorie M. Lazoff, "Residential Groups and Individual Development," describes living conditions, social environment, and reactions to them of several groups of undergraduate men at Stanford University. Chapter Eight, by Ving Ellis, "Students Who Seek Psychiatric Help," is based on interviews and questionnaire data from 493 undergraduate students who come to the psychiatric clinic at the University of California, Berkeley. Data is given on their families, intelligence, grade-point average, entry complaints, and personality inventory scores. Several case studies follow. Chapter Nine, by Nevitt Sanford and Susan Singer, "Drinking and Personality," reports a study relating drinking and abstaining behaviors to attitudes about drinking, and to several personality characteristics. Chapter 10, by Max M. Levin, "Changes in Authoritarianism," compares students whose authoritarianism scores changed much over four undergraduate years, with those whose scores changed little, over several personality dimensions. Chapter 11, by Joseph Katz, "The Activist Revolution of 1964," gives a history of the beginning of the mass student protest at the University of California at Berkeley, then discusses personality characteristics of Free Speech Movement participants. Lengthy quotations from an interview with one activist conclude the chapter. (BP)
