Patriotic Education in Contemporary Russia : Sociological Studies in the Making of the Post-Soviet Citizen Paperback / softback
by Anna Sanina
This book is a comprehensive study of the social roots of citizen raising in contemporary Russia.
It traces the development of governmental patriotic programs in recent decades, discusses how the Soviet past and political traditions influence todays system of patriotism formation, and presents numerous examples illustrating real-life processes in current patriotic education.
While the topics of patriotism and patriotic education are highly politicised, this study approaches them from a sociological perspective.
It identifies the basic model of patriotic education as a fairly stable structure born of the values and attitudes of different agents: teachers, school administrators, and civil servants.
Patriotic education in Russia is shown as a particular example of how a political idea can lead to the formation of social structures, and how, in time, those social structures can lead to the restoration of the original political idea.
