About this Item

*Stated Second Printing 1966* Amazing condition, like new, a almost 50 year old book that is whistle-clean inside and out with no flaws. The dust jacket is fine - with a little rubbing on the front and binding and a touch of edge-wear at the head of spine on one corner and a tiny 'frosting on the foot. A thorough and scholarly study of Finland's history from its beginnings to the present (1965). "Following an introductory chapter that establishes the geographical, social, and political background of Finland today, the author opens the survey with the Middle Ages and goes on to describe some of the main aspects of Finland's position during the many centuries before the nineteenth when the country was an integral part of the Swedish realm. succeeding chapters offer a summary of the decades between 1809 and 1917 when Finland was an autonomous constitutional state in union with Russia. Detailed attention is given to the attainment of independence in 1917-18, the growth of the republic in 1919-39, Finland's involvement in WW II, and the consequences of the war. The last several chapters delineate, in broad outline, the development of the nation since 1945." -- from dj flap. Bookseller Inventory # 000879
