Attitude Change of American Tourists in the Soviet Union.
Pre- and post-travel questionnaires mailed to American tourists visiting the Soviet Union record attitude change and serve as the basis for this eight-chapter research project report. Most of the report considers the relation of various factors to attitude change, including education, level of information, language ability, sex, age, occupation, and income. Several chapters are devoted to Americans' perceptions of the Soviet people, government, discussions of research methodology, research sample, and sample changes in attitude toward U.S. foreign relations. An overview on tourism in the Soviet Union is included in the introduction. Frequent use of graphs and tables illustrates the results of the questionnaires in a statistical breakdown of the pertinent material. Quotations on travel selected from literature and folk literature are cited at the beginning of each chapter. (AF)
