167 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, b&w plates. "This book sketches the historical experiences, the cultural and environmental influences which have made national characteristics and form the basis of policies in home and foreign affairs. Fierce patriotism and stubborn loyalties to friends and traditions are perhaps to be expected in a people who have discovered how to live well in their inordinately long country extending far beyond the Arctic Circle a n d s l a s h ed into a crazy pattern by glaciers, mountains and fjords. Democratic institutions, the huge merchant fleet, the midnight sun, the cod fisheries of Lofoten, Hanseatic Bergen, the growing pains of the capital of Oslo, the creation o f a ne w l an gu ag e by Parliamentary decree and especially the long associations with the English across the Northern Sea, form part of the picture. A fascinating folk and a very beautiful country - the two cannot be separated...."
