Education and Autocracy in Russia
Excerpt from Education and Autocracy in Russia: From the Origins to the BolshevikiIn view of present social and political conditions, pointing to the beginning of the growth of a closer relationship between the old world and the new. it becomes more imperative than ever that mutual understanding and knowledge be the basis of the new relationship. The history of Russian education, from an interpretative point of view, has scarcely been begun, even in Russia, though the materials for it have been collected. It is intended that this first survey shall be followed by other investigations giving, for the various periods, a more detailed account than has been possible in this broader analysis.I am glad to express my appreciation for the aid and encouragement which have been given me. Professors Monroe, Kilpatrick and Kandel of Teachers' College have been particularly kind, while to Professor Prince of the Russian Department of Columbia University I owe my first introduction, some five years ago. to the language and the affairs of Russia.I am also under obligation to my many Russian friends who, however much they have differed in political and social creeds have, one and all, exemplified a spirit of service in giving many hours of their time to a foreigner who had no other claim than a sincere and friendly interest in their land and language.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
