Synopsis top ↑
The structure of the book follows the customary division of geography into six main fields, which are arranged in such a way as to ensure that as far as possible the information in each one can be assimilated on the basis of that presented earlier in the book. To the same ends, the inter-Nordic summaries covering each of the special fields are located before the articles on the separate countries in that field. A chapter on the history of Norden is supplied at the beginning in order that the reader should start out with an understanding of the historical unity of the region and the special characteristics that stem from this.
This new geography of the northern countries will serve as an important source of information for geographers all over the world, and for everybody interested in the geography of Norden.
