(p.129) Chapter Seven The Rule of Law: Expansion
Philip Selznick
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the 1960s and the social movements that influenced Selznick. The first significant event that forced a taking of sides in heated debate, and had long-lived effects on many of the participants, occurred at the end of 1964. Students at many universities in the United States were already becoming politicized by the civil rights movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s. They were to be dramatically radicalized by the Vietnam War, the draft, and the antiwar movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. In between, there was a major crisis at Berkeley, paralleled in many universities throughout the world: as students valiantly fighting for important values against an intransigent and bone-headed university administration, or tactically maneuvering for larger political game while repeatedly and deliberately wrong-footing that administration, at the expense of the distinctive values of an academic community. Selznick began with the first view. Later he came to believe the movement had changed, and he lost sympathy with it. But it had lasting effects on his thought.
