A History of Denmark, Knud Jespersen

2 A History of Denmark
Knud Jespersen
288 pages, hardback, Palgrave Macmillan
From the Reformation to present day, this book guides the reader through 500 years of wars, territorial losses, domestic upheavals, and changes in thought in Denmark's history. Looking carefully at the development of Danish identity, the author explores whether Danes can be most aptly described as a tribe or a nation. Using new research and original theories, it's the perfect introduction to the fascinating and relatively unknown history of this Scandinavian country.

About Author
