Summary
Georgina Brewis takes a long view of the experience of going to university in Britain over a hundred year period. She explores students' extra-curricular volunteering, fundraising, campaigning and protest activities in Britain and beyond to show that voluntary action was central to the emergence of a distinct student movement. Brewis also considers the evolution of volunteering since the late nineteenth century through study of students' activities and argues that the universities made significant contributions to causes and campaigns ranging from educational reconstruction in 1920s Europe, relief for victims of fascism in the 1930s, and international development in the 1960s. The book draws on rich historical sources and a wider range of student testimony than any earlier study to tell the fascinating story of how ordinary women and men students engaged with the pressing social and international problems of the twentieth century
