The Dynamics of University Protest.
Light, Donald, Jr.; Spiegel, John P.
Eleven years after the end of the height of protest on college and university campuses, it is important to try to understand what the student protest movement was all about, how it came to be, how and why it ended, and what will happen next. Through intimate case studies of takeovers at various universities, the dynamics of that era are examined. Presented in this book are essays on the literature about the protest movement, its organizational context, the tactics of protest, the dynamics of faculty response, the group psychology of campus disorders, and the strategies adopted by university authorities to counter dissent. The study attempts to provide both historical and structural perspective on previous topical studies of the protest period. A bibliography and index are included. (Author/MSE)
