REVOLT ON THE CAMPUS by James Wechsler


Email this review


The American college boy and girl was living in a rosy dream until 1929. Since then, a tremendous change is sweeping over the country, and the author analyses that change, and the open divisions resulting, the conflicts with the authorities, the opposition of the financial conservatives of the Boards of Trustees, the difficulties of making any headway. Anti-war demonstrations, socialism, communism, labor sympathizers, insistence on free speech -- symptoms of a growing awareness of what is happening outside the campus gates. Primarily a first rate reporting job -- rather than an attempt to show the way. A book that will go well without much effort, in college towns --show it prominently to get it started. Have it reviewed in the college papers. Beyond that, bring it to the attention of people seriously interested in progress in education.
