Annotation: ATTEMPT TO IDENTIFY MAJOR REASONS FOR VIOLENT CAMPUS DISORDERS PRECIPITATED BY DEMANDS FOR BLACK STUDIES PROGRAMS AND OPEN ADMISSIONS POLICY ON MINORITY STUDENTS.
Abstract: THE DISORDERS ARE TRACED FROM THE EARLY STAGE OF PEACEFUL PROTEST THROUGH THE CHANGE TO VIOLENT CONFRONTATION. RESEARCH INDICATED THAT IT WAS MISLEADING TO ATTRIBUTE THE CAUSES OF VIOLENCE TO OUTSIDE AGITATORS. THE VIOLENCE MIRRORED THE TURMOIL, THE SHARPLY DIVERGENT OUTLOOK, AND THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL IMBALANCES WHICH DIVIDE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TODAY. CHIEF AMONG THE INTERNAL STRAINS WHICH PRODUCED THE STRIKE WERE PROBLEMS IN STRUCTURE AND GOVERNANCE WHICH RESULTED IN RELUCTANCE TO RESPOND RAPIDLY TO THE NEED FOR CHANGE.
Index Term(s): Attitudes toward authority; California; Campus Security; Civil disturbance units; Demonstrator arrests; Minorities; Revolutionary or terrorist groups; Student disorders; Student grievances; Violence
