Steven Koblik’s epilogue extends Scott’s now standard text with an analysis of contemporary Swedish political, economic, and social behavior. In addition to the epilogue, Scott has made a number of alterations in the text in order to maintain the timeliness and comprehensiveness of the work.
Using a chronological-topical structure, Scott shows how and why Sweden progressed from times of backwardness to an age of military greatness, through two centuries of cultural development and relapse into poverty followed by a sudden outburst of productive energy and the creation of an exceptionally prosperous welfare state where the ideal is consensus rather than confrontation.

Scott provides a broad-based general history that is narrative and interpretive. It is not primarily political history or social history or military or religious history--rather, it partakes of the nature of all these and more as, in the kaleidoscope of events, it attempts to explain what happened and why.About the Author:
Franklin D. Scott is Curator of Nordic Collections, Honnold Library of the Claremont Colleges, and Emeritus Professor of History at Northwestern University.
Steven Koblik is Professor of History at Pomona College, Claremont, California.
