Swedish socialistic cultural policy : a comparative study of social democratic and communist approach towards culture 1917-1939 (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis deals with the cultural efforts of the Swedish labour movement during the period of 1917-1939. It aims to examine the similarities and differences between social democrats and communists in their approach towards culture. My theoretical guidelines are the dialectic and materialistic view on history as set forth by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. I have examined some important individuals in the cultural debate within the Swedish labour movement, such as Ture Nerman and Arthur Engberg, and I also briefly outline the debate in the Soviet Union from the classics of Lenin and Stalin. I have found that the social democrats were mainly concerned with a democratic distribution of the existing bourgeois culture rather than working for the creation of a new proletarian culture; the communists on the other hand made considerable efforts to benefit the workers' own culture based on class struggle, but failed to threaten the social democratic ideological hegemony among the Swedish working class.
