The Challenge of Soviet Education
The Challenge of Soviet Education
By George S. Counts
McGraw-Hill, 1957, 330 pp

Professor Counts, a student for many years of the subject, here presents a very comprehensive report on Soviet education--its ideological goals, its function in Soviet society, its success in training an élite of specialists and technicians. On the whole the author finds the Soviet performance a formidable one and does not believe that education will undermine the régime.
