25 G. Brylov organized similar research into the literary tastes of metal-workers in Leningrad in the late 1920s. 26 Despite the democratic rationale of such undertakings, 'readers' criticism' always struck an uneasy balance between recognizing popular opinions and (increasingly) 'organizing' these opinions. One manual of 1927, offering instruction on how to conduct 'evenings of worker criticism', observed that an 'organ of worker control over mass literature' was essential, but that workers, when expressing their opinions, should not 'repeat themselves or stray from the main objective of the meeting'Y This objective was, of course, to be firmly defined by Glavpolitprosvet or some other agency of the Party's cultural policy.
In 1924 alone around 200 books and articles were written on the subject of the new Soviet reader. 18 The new regime itself commissioned largescale readership surveys. Jeffrey Brooks relates that as early as 1920-1 the political department of the Red Army found time to circulate to 11 900 soldiers a questionnaire inquiring about the popularity and effectiveness of mass literature. Studies of the reader in the early to mid-1920s took a genuine interest in the demands of the common reader (even if these demands were not acted on); by the end of the decade such surveys, while almost as widespread, were more structured and selective.
Their accusers alleged that they had duplicated each other's production by selfishly pursuing profits, and as a result had been left with remaindered books to the face-value of tens of millions of roubles. For the first ten years of Soviet power, state publishing had had its hands full catering for the mass reader, and had left to the private and co-operative sector the business of differentiated publishing for a more educated readership. By the end of the 1920s, however, the mass reader was growing more sophisticated and demanding, and the old intelligentsia was being replaced by a 'people's intelligentsia'.
