This study is the third and culminating work by Weaver on Soviet youth. This work examines the Soviet system and its education of young communists in Komsomol (the Young Communist League) and at Moscow State University. Given the events of recent times, her study has shifted from examining how Soviet young people learned communism to considering how they unlearn communism. Her first-hand account is based on her travels and study in the Soviet Union and in Russia and the other fourteen republics.
