Overview

Campus Power Struggle traces the explosive evolution of the student political movement from the Berkeley Free Speech Movement of 1964 to armed confrontation at Cornell in 1969. From campus conflict as a microcosm of larger political struggles for self-determination, to student concern about infringements upon personal liberties, the studies in this book provide authoritative insight into unrest on American campuses. This volume represents sociology as the "big news" in its most impressive and involved style. No.l in the series.
