Activists Ten Years Later: A Test of Generational Unit Continuity
Fendrich, James M.
Journal of Social Issues, 30, 3, 95-118, Sum 74
This study focuses on the generational unit born out of the student protest movement and the long-range consequences of having been involved in a social movement. Three alternative sets of consequences were explored: maturation, dissillusionment, and generational conflict which creates a distinctive generational unit. The results strongly suggest that college activists of the early 1960's retain their distinctiveness even today: the level of student activism had major direct and indirect effects on political attitudes and behavior.
