This dissertation is concerned with an examination of the indoctrinational aspects of elementary public education in the U.S.S.R. The meaning of the term "indoctrination" is examined both from a historical and a contemporary point of view. Ancient cultures, in order to assure their social and cultural survival, have practiced policies of indoctrination of the young. Modern propaganda techniques utilizing the new mass media of communications have been much more effective in the indoctrination of national groups than had previously been possible. Totalitarian systems in the twentieth century have been characterized by strong efforts to indoctrine the young, thus imbuing them with the goals and ideals of the state [TRUNCATED].
