Review

"This book fills a niche that no other English-language book on Finland does, so it is an important purchase for all academic libraries...essential"--Choice; "exceptionally well written, organized and presented...very highly recommended"--Midwest Book Review.

Product Description

 Providing a multifaceted view of modern Finland, this book describes its history, culture, language, geography, natural history and the mythology of early peoples. Topics include Fenno-Scandia inhabitants and their environment, traditional naturalism and modern environmentalism, and the salient features of “Finnishness,” including an analysis of the Finnish educational system and gender equality. Finland’s art, architecture and music are highlighted, along with its peace-keeping missions worldwide.
The country’s several ethnic groups and their languages are discussed—the Saami, Finns, Finland-Swedes, Russian-speaking peoples, Jews and Gypsies. The author examines Finland’s late but rapid development in commerce and industry, with a focus on the history of Nokia Corporation, which grew from a 19th-century manufacturer of pulpwood and rubber boots to a 21st-century international digital communications company.
