Book description
The three volumes of The Cambridge History of Scandinavia provide a unique work of reference for all students of Scandinavian political, economic, social and cultural history. The series covers the period 800 AD to our own times, covering the geographical area occupied by modern Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, and the Scandinavian 'crown lands' (Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland) and Sweden's Baltic provinces and the Danish duchies of Slesvig and Holstein as they featured in Scandinavian history.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521472997, Hardcover)

The various countries and communities that constitute present-day Scandinavia consider themselves as integral parts of that larger region. Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Greenland share a common geographic, historic and socio-cultural distinctness that differs from the rest of Europe. This "distinctness" provides the rationale for compiling a comprehensive and comparative history of Scandinavia. The first volume in the series will be followed by two others.
