Neil Kent's book sweeps through Sweden's history from the Stone Age to the present day. Early coverage includes Viking hegemony, the Scandinavian Union, the Reformation and Sweden's political zenith as Europe's greatest superpower in the seventeenth century, while later chapters explore the Swedish Enlightenment, royal absolutism, the commitment to military neutrality and Pan-Scandinavianism. The author brings his account up to date by focusing on more recent developments: the rise of Social Democracy, the establishment of the welfare state, the country's acceptance of membership in the European Union and its progressive ecological programme. The book successfully combines the politics, economics and social and cultural mores of one of the world's most successfully functioning and humane societies. This is an informative and entertaining account for students and general readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise. Yes and that's fine. Sept. 12 2012
By DrDirkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The content of the book is what the title sais: Concise and Factful. And that is great for getting you swiftly into the history of Sweden. To me also thìs book is not entirely a neutral account of Swedish history (See also reviews on other books about Sweden's history). There is some chauvinism about "British democracy". And it repeats present day's popular topics like women's rights and Jews a few times too many. Yet these are minor objections, so be invited to consider them as a matter of taste. As a whole, the book is surely worth reading.
