Sweden has the reputation of being one of best countries in the world in which to live. Its cities are clean, safe, and friendly, and its wide-open landscapes of forests, lakes, and meadows are largely unspoiled. What is more, its small population of just under nine million people enjoy an enviably high standard of living as well as a generous welfare system. While the majority of Swedes are today urban, they continue to value the traditions of the countryside. Sweden is today respected as a peacemaker and mediator. This reputation, however, belies its past of conquest and war. During medieval times, Swedish Vikings raided lands all over Europe, while, later, the charismatic Vasa kings established a Baltic empire. Book jacket.
