This study sought to measure the degree of socialization absorbed by a number of five year old children. The children were examined individually at five different pre-school programs located in a large southwestern mettropolitan city. The first chapter is introductory and covers general comments on political socialization with emphasis on past authoritative attempts at controlled socialization of children. The second chapter deals with a review of the pertinent literature though very little was available. The third chapter outlined a method of the study including remarks on the content and administration of the test. Environmental information taken from the I97C Census was presented on the area surrounding each test location. The fourth chapter concerns the examination and interpretation of the data garnered with cross comparisons on sex, parental income, and race. A special section was devoted to information dealing with a sub-culture. The fifth and final chapter details general summary and conclusions.
