Product Overview

One of the smallest countries in Europe, Norway has created a position for itself in the world community that is completely out of proportion to its size. Originally the home of sub-Arctic hunters and gatherers and subsequently of ferocious Vikings, Norway lost perhaps half of its population to the Black Death in 1349. It weathered unions with Denmark and Sweden, gaining complete independence only as recently as 1905. Over the centuries, Norwegians have eked out a meager living from stony fields and treacherous seas; however, the recent introduction of such natural resources as hydroelectric power, natural gas, and oil has made the Norwegians some of the richest people in the world.

The A to Z of Norway illuminates Norway's remarkable history, society, and culture through a chronology, a bibliography, an introductory essay, appendixes, and more than 250 cross-referenced dictionary entries covering events and individuals of historical, political, social, and cultural significance. Both past and present political parties are discussed, major economic sectors are described, and basic economic facts are provided. The history and attractions of major Norwegian cities, as well as Norway's role in the international community are detailed---providing a full portrait of this vibrant country.
