The Campus War: A Sympathetic Look at the University in Agony

Excerpt

This book deals mostly with student unrest in the United States. I have also borrowed from my experiences in England and France, because student unrest in those countries has a close family resemblance to that in the United States, though the English version is, so far, less virulent than the American. I have not discussed university problems in Communist or underdeveloped countries, because they seem to present different phenomena from those of the advanced industrial democracies. Furthermore, I have been mostly concerned with analyzing the revolts of white middle-class students. Black militancy is not especially a campus phenomenon but rather an urban phenomenon that spilled over into the campuses.

An earlier version of Chapter 1 appeared in The New York Times Magazine, December 29, 1968, entitled A Foolproof Scenario for Student Revolts.
