Social Conflict and Collective Violence in American Institutions of Higher Learning. Volume 1. Dynamics of Student Protest.
Rosenthal, Carl F.
This volume of a 2 volume report presents an historical study of collective student conflict and violence in America and a framework for analyzing the internal and external dynamics of current student disorders in America. In the historical segment collective student behavior is categorized into 4 classes: faddism, deprivation, normative action, and ideological. Each type of demonstration is seen as evolving through 4 phases: pro-mobilization, mobilization, demonstration, and post-demonstration. Countermeasures appropriate to specific internal factors, e.g., students, faculty, administration, etc., and external factors, e.g., police, public media, etc., are suggested for each phrase. A related document is HE 003 967. (Author)
