ABSTRACT

Social Institutions and Thermonuclear War - A Case Study of Higher Education   [open pdf - 4MB]

"The research presented in this report deals with the problem of insuring the effective operation of higher education as a social institution in the post-attack society. The report takes the position that social institutions in general and higher education in particular will play an important role in rebuilding the social organization and preventing cultural stagnation after thermonuclear war. Higher education will be responsible for replenishing the human resources necessary for technological growth following disruption, and its ability to perform this function will depend to a large extent' upon the steps that are taken both pre- and post-attack to minimize system disruption and hasten recovery."
