Superior Soviet Education

Bildung für Millionen. Das Schulwesen in der UdSSR [Education for Millions. The USSR School System].

Wien: [Globus-Verl.], 1949. 210 by 300mm (8¼ by 11¾ inches). Oblong quarto. Photographic brochure; 48 pp. In German. 

Very good to near fine (some creasing to the spine); a very crisp copy.

Post-World War II Soviet propaganda on the superior educational system in the Soviet Union. Profusely illustrated and graphically stunning with reproductions of photographs in sepia-tone and charts. Parents may appreciate the kindergarten description — where children are cared for until 8PM! Caricature from the New York Times (!) is used to prove the dismal state of the American school system (straight to Juvenile Delinquency). Published in 1949 in the Russian Besatzungszone’ of Vienna/Austria. Ausgabe des Sowjetischen Informationsdienstes.
