Political Ideologies of Graduate Students: Crystallization, Consistency, and Contextual Effects.
Fay, Margaret A.; Weintraub, Jeff A.
This study examines the relationship between the graduate student's political self-characterization and his responses to attitude questions, and tests the influence on his relationship to the variables of political interest and academic contest. Part one, ideological consistency, discusses the sample group, selection of indicators, analysis of data, discussion of results, and an external check of ideological consistency hypothesis. Part two, contextual effects, covers theoretical orientations, classification of departments, analysis of data, results, and possibilities for further research. (MJM)
