August 20, 2013
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, a powerful new force, student activism, appeared on the campuses of America's colleges and universities. Student Freedom In American Higher Education brought together authors with various perspectives on the concept of student freedom (Teachers College Press, Columbia University, 1969).
Student Freedom Revisited brings together a different, but equally diverse group of international scholars, administrators, and students, and likewise divergent views. This collection of essays focuses on the dominant themes in student freedom today, from technology and politics, to diversity, sexual mores, and the law. Two chapters by current student activists provide uncommon insight into the resurgence of campus activism. Regardless of the reader's particular interest in higher education, he or she will find in these pages both diverse perspectives and valuable analyses of the contemporary and emerging issues in student freedom.
