Abstract : The report indicates research analyses made and lists reports produced on problems of comparative national development, with particular reference to the role and attitudes of university students as a source of political pressure and as the future elite of various countries. The research covered three areas: (1) General problems of political development in emergent nations; (2) efforts to test propositions concerning the role and influence of young (student) elites; and (3) methodological studies relating to the conduct of comparative research. The analyses were made on the basis of survey and other data collected under private foundation and university support funds in a number of countries in Latin America, North Africa, Eastern Europe, and India. Data on students in the U.S. was used for comparative purposes. (Author)
