Summary
  • "From 1931 to 1937, School No. 25 was the most famous and most lavishly appointed school in the Soviet Union, instructing the children of such prominent parents as Joseph Stalin, head of the Communist Party, Viacheslav Molotov, head of the Soviet State, and Paul Robeson, American actor and singer. Relying on published records, materials in eleven archives, accounts left by visiting foreigners - including American educator George Counts - and thirty-six interviews with surviving pupils, Holmes brings Model School No. 25 to life
  • The school's administrators, teachers, pupils, friends, and foes become companions as well as objects of this study as we walk the school's halls, enter its classrooms, eavesdrop on feuding officials who debate its fate, and learn something of what the school and the period meant for its youth. Photographs of the school's teachers and students and reproductions of the students' notebooks, drawings, and watercolors add personality to this story."--BOOK JACKET
