Dr. Read: Materialism Used Against Religion In Russia [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1960
Dr. Read: Materialism Used Against Religion In Russia The Soviet Union is stepping up its cold war against religion through a broad program of moral training grounded in materialism according to a Kent State University specialist on education in the U.S.S.R. Dr. Gerald Read, who left this week for his third visit to the Soviet Union in two years, said the main offensive is being waged in the classroom.

He taught American Diplomatic history and a seminar in the same subject during the first semester, and a course in American Revolution and Constitution during the second. Student interest in America is high, said Kaplan. They want to know our shortcomings as well as our present policies. "And they have a great awareness of the world and are concerned in Germany's relative position. However, said Kaplan, they have too little understanding of the activities surrounding Nazism and World War 11. "High school textbooks have outlines ...
