Based on a study of 12,000 elementary schoolchildren in eight large and medium-sized American cities, this book presents the first large-scale study of political attitude formation in children. The authors view political development from the perspective of a general theory of socialization, and compare the influences of social class, intelligence, teacher attitude, and religious membership on the growth of political attitudes. aTheir verbatim interviews with grade-schoolers are pungent and entertaining. A useful homework assignment for mothers and fathers.aaNew York Times
