The College Union Idea.
This book is a biography of the college union from its conception in the early 19th century and how it grew into the concept of a social-cultural-recreational center in the 20th century. Highlighted are the influences of the world wars on the college unions, the shattering impact of student disruption and violence and the union's response to these, and the constant need for redefinition of the role of the union and the union's ultimate mission in preparing students for the future.
