My research studies the ways the successful use of propaganda messages, on behalf of the Uzbek Soviet state, helped entail that this dictatorial regime secured the support of numerous inhabitants of the capital city of this SSR, Tashkent, between 1924 and 1950. Through the use of interviews to citizens of Tashkent who lived under this regime in the proposed time span, I ascertain what propaganda messages were used for the purpose of ensuring Tashkent dwellers' political loyalty to the Soviet Union. At the same time, these interviews suggest that, in some ways, this loyalty was incomplete and superficial, indicating that Soviet citizens of the Uzbek SSR only partially crossed the political divide separating them from the dictatorship they lived under.
