In the context of the re-emergence of ethnic nationalisms in several parts of Europe, few would think of the stable and apparently ethnically homogenous Nordic countries. They do however contain their own ethnic minorities. This book examines the historical experience of these minorities and their role in the emergence of nationalism in the Nordic world. It also looks at nationalism, separate from minority issues, in the cases of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroes.


Ethnic and National Minorities in the Nordic Nation-Building Process; The Emergence of Nationalism in Iceland; The Formation of a Nation: The Faroe Islands; The Formation of a Nation: Greenland; Sami Aednan (The Lapps): Four States, One Nation?; Minority Policy and the Finns in Northern Scandinavia; Finns and Swedes in Finland; Karelians Between East and West; National Minorities in Southern Jutland; Immigration to Scandinavia after the Second World War.
