|Title:||Youth Protest in North America|
|Authors:||Gracie, Bruce A.|
|Advisor:||Blumstock, Robert E.|
|Abstract:||<p>The proposed study deals with the delineation of the processes underlying youth protest in contemporary North American society. As such it deals with youth discontent as a response to social and economic changes which have been indigenous to Western culture during the past century and especially the past decade. Protest is conceptualized as being primarily a middle-class phenomenon and directed toward the attainment of a sense of ultimate purpose and meaning. Conversely, discontent represents the youthful expression of the desire to alleviate a sense of boredom, obsolescence, and uselessness precipitated by the technocratic, secular society.</p>|
