About this Item

"Increasingly transnationally organized economies and the developments in Europe in the wake of 1989 have put the questions of 'Norden' on the agenda in the North. What did historically constructed ideas of Nordic community represent in the framework of the new preconditions for European integration? What have such ideas meant historically? How has 'Norden' as a community of destiny been constructed culturally? These are the key questions of this volume. The point of departure is an interest in the cultural construction of community and in what national and Nordic identities represented in the North in comparison with other patterns of national identity and community construction. The role of the peasants in the historical emergence of political culturres in the North is emphasised. The contributions shed from various views light on the cultural construction of 'Norden' geo-politically and in local parish politics, under discussion of the role of religion and foundation myths about a heroic past, language, stateoriented liberalism and welfarestatist indivudualism, a pragmatic youth ideology and a pragmatic dissociation from Utopian overtones." This book has 315 pages. The text contains NO internal markas whatsoever. Overall, a FINE copy with FINE dust jacket of this VERY SCARCE title. Bookseller Inventory # 060829
