This book has already been published in Germany and has been praised for its objectivity, authenticity and originality. It is the first book in English to attempt a comparison between the two States: the West, with its desire for pre-1933 values, and the East with its wish to transform the traditional culture through the school system. There is an historical introduction, an analysis of contrasting objectives and the partial retreat from entrenched ideological positions.
