This book explores the Soviet government's attempt to eradicate adult illiteracy in the Russian Republic in the 1920s. It draws on published and unpublished sources to describe the process of bringing "enlightenment" to previously uneducated adults. It focuses on how the Communist Party and the Soviet state launched its literacy campaign, how people reacted, and how the campaign and reactions to it illuminate the process of attempting to build a socialist state.
