Regional Integration in Early Modern Scandinavia

By Jorgen Middelsen, Bjorn Poulsen, Finn Eliassen

In the Nordic countries, regions and regionalism have played a central role in politics, administration, economic and cultural life for a long time. The differences in voting behavior, language, religious views, social structure and attitudes between districts, regions, and provinces within each country are often striking. In addition to these internal regions, there are also greater, transnational regions, cutting across state and national boundaries, and incorporating parts of several present-day states. The editors of this book have brought together a number of the most active and experienced practitioners in this field, inviting them to present some of the most interesting results from their own research and readings in regional history, in a form accessible also to a non-Nordic readership.
