The founding of the U.S. National Student Association (NSA) in September of 1947 was shaped by the immediate concerns and worldview of the "GI Bill Generation" of American Students, returning from a world at war to build a world at peace. The more than 90 living authors of this book, all of whom are of that generation, tell about NSA's formation and first five years. The book also provides a prologue reaching back into the 1930s and an epilogue going forward to the sixties and beyond.
