critiquing the industrialization of knowledge, and exposing the university-business nexus. This
was one of the earliest movements to become skilled at using the media to mobilize allies,
incorporating techniques from the civil rights movement, but also initiating novel strategies.
New techniques included teach-ins, and occupations.
The civil rights movement and the student movement spawned many of the other
movements that followed them, with members of these first two joining the others, and utilizing
the new forms of action that these earlier movements had invented. By the end of this decade, the
women’s movement and environmental movements had also appeared, again influenced by the
civil rights movement earlier in the decade. In the early 1980s, the new peace movement
appeared. The environmental movement was partly a result of the growth and radicalization of
already existing organizations while the women’s and peace movements were revivals of
movements that had earlier periods of mobilization.
Of all these movements, the student movement is the only one that no longer exists as
such; the women’s movement and the peace movement have declined almost everywhere from
their original form, while the environmental movement is very much still alive in various ways.
Another sporadic movement that has preceded and been contemporaneous with all of these other
movements has been the labor movement. In the mid-1990s and beyond, another movement that
has picked up relatively high momentum in recent years is the antiglobalization movement. The
initial broad base of issues first set out by the student and anti-war movements have laid the
foundation for movements and protests across the United States, and lead us to the first research
question this study examined.
