Historical Dictionary of Norway, Hardback Book


Norway has a thousand year history from the Vikings (750-1100) to modern times.

Historically, a poor country on Europe's periphery, its natural resources and hardy people have established a successful modern welfare state.

Norway has exploited its natural resources of fish, water, oil, and gas to become one of Europe's most successful small states. This second edition of I contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography.

The dictionary section has over 300 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture.

This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Norway.
