Student Activism: A Bibliography of Empirical Research. Exchange Bibliography No. 709.
Dunlap, Riley E.; Peck, Dennis L.
This bibliography organizes the empirical research literature concerning student activism that was produced in the decade following the Berkeley Free Speech Movement. It is organized into eight sections. Section 1 focuses on studies of "radical" (leftist, antiestablishment) activists while Section 2 focuses on conservative student activists and Section 3 on black student protestors. Section 4 contains references to two types of studies--those concerned primarily with measuring the scope of student protest (what proportion of campuses experienced protest) and those concerned with relating the occurrence of protest to characteristics of institutions of higher education. The next three sections are concerned with studies of attitudes--student, faculty, and public--toward protest. The final section contains citations of reviews of the empirical literature.
