This is the first comprehensive book on Finland to be published in Bulgarian; it covers the history of the land from antiquity to its growth into a modern state. In Ingrid Bon's book, Finland is presented not only as "the land of forests and thousands of lakes", an attractive characterization that makes of it a destination for tourists eager to see its magnificent natural landscape. A specialist in Scandinavian history, the author portrays the political, social, economic, and cultural development of Finland, whose adherence to the European Union gave it a new dimension and importance as the bridge between East and West that it has always been. The author reveals a rich and turbulent past and a dynamic present, and invites the reader to a deeper look at the roots of present-day Finnish society. The book is highly readable and contains documents, photos and maps.
A fine book. I have started reading it but I finished the first 100 pages in one go. It would be useful to people taking an interest in the history of the North. Quite a lot of facts have been adduced for Finland, in particular, and they are based on real historical sources.
