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 today's 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 politicized, 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.
"This book is the first sociological study of patriotic education in Russia, a major topic to understand contemporary Russia and the complex relationship between the state and the society. Sanina offers a comprehensive approach of many different aspects and actors of this massive trend of 'patriotizing' the Russian society. A must-read book for all those following ideological evolutions of Russia." -Marlene Laruelle, George Washington University
