Labour, Unions and Politics Under the North Star : The Nordic Countries, 1700-2000 Hardback
Edited by Mary Hilson, Silke Neunsinger, Iben Vyff
Part of the International Studies in Social History series
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden today all enjoy a reputation for strong labour movements, which in turn are widely seen as part of a distinctive regional approach to politics, collective bargaining and welfare.
But as this volume demonstrates, narratives of the so-called "Nordic model" can obscure the fact that the fortunes of organized labour have varied widely throughout the region and across different historical periods.
Together, the essays collected here represent an ambitious intervention in labor historiography and European history, exploring themes such as work, unions, politics and migration from the early modern period to the twenty-first century.
