Abstract : In recent years, there has been an increase in manifestations of unrest or dissent by young people throughout the world against institutions of authority, including the Army. The report is the first of two volumes on a study undertaken to determine the potential for dissidence in the U.S. Army. The volume deals with the nature of dissent and the characteristics of dissidents in the Army. An attempt is made to develop methodology for examining the problem on an analytical basis. Some preliminary results are presented, but as they are based on a limited amount of data, they are intended to serve primarily as a guideline for the direction of future work which is in progress in this field.
