In order to understand the various changes in ideology in textbooks, one must turn to language, which transmits the ideological meanings horizontally (within a certain period) and vertically (for a period of time). Language serves ideology in transmitting a certain 'reality', which it aims to perpetuate, for the sake of survival. Textbooks provide 'social manifestoes', which include the 'formal language' in which ideology is used for purposes of communication and socialisation.
